CORNING, N.Y. (WETM) – Phillips Funeral Home gave away free Christmas trees for the second year in a row from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.

The Co-Owner of Phillips Funeral Home, Garrett DuVall, said they have 100 trees to give away this year which is double what they had last year. He also said there’s been a significant outreach from the community for this tree giveaway.

“We decided to do it despite the pandemic because we realized there’s definitely a need for this,” said DuVall. “We’re going to have Santa Claus here from noon to 2 for complimentary photos. Our way just to give back to the community.”

If you missed it this year, DuVall says they are trying to have one again next year.
