A snowman and the Grinch helped brighten this past holiday season for some community members in need.
Designers and other employees of Case Design/Remodeling, Inc. created Christmas trees for the firm's annual Christmas tree decorating contest last month. The trees, which had themes that included Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz, were donated to the Clara Barton Center in Cabin John, a nonprofit organization that provides educational and childcare programs for children. Trees were also donated to Homestretch, a Falls Church, Va.-based nonprofit that empowers homeless families with children to become self-sufficient. The winning entry was the “Peace for Paris” tree, a red, white and blue tribute to France.
