Eagles set up trees for a good cause

1 min read

The Beaufort Eagles Wrestling Team participated Sunday, Dec. 1 in its annual community service project to help the Friends of Carolina Hospice, its adopted charity for the Festival of Trees.

The team gathered late in the morning and worked through the afternoon setting up 45 Christmas trees. The team also sponsored and decorated a tree of its own this year.

“I am very proud of our team and the hours we put in today to make someone else’s holidays brighter and more merry,” Beaufort High School assistant athletic director Ron Lanham said in a release. “If nobody purchases our tree, it will be donated to an individual in hospice care or a first responder that needs a tree of their own. I’m very proud of our team and their commitment to give back to the community.”

The trees will be on display through Thursday, Dec. 5 at Tabby Place on Port Republic Street.
