DETROIT (AP) - McDonald's restaurant owners are donating 1,000 live Christmas trees to Detroit-area families.
Five hundred trees, tree stands and gift cards will be given at a private event Saturday morning to families pre-selected by area churches.
The remaining trees will be available from 1-3 p.m. on a first-come basis at the McDonald's on Eight Mile Road near Woodward Avenue.
The trees are 5 feet tall to 6 feet tall.
Event organizers say Detroit-area McDonald's restaurant owners also have donated turkeys, hats and scarfs, school supplies and other items to families in need as part of their support for the community.
