La Luz del Mundo’s Annual Christmas Tree Fundraiser

La Luz del Mundo Christmas Tree Lot

For five years now, La Luz del Mundo has set up a fundraising Christmas tree lot on 104th Avenue off of International Boulevard.  I had the pleasure of speaking to a number of its members.  They are a friendly and inviting group.  The church was previously located on 94th Avenue but, unfortunately, a fire destroyed the location (click here for story regarding the fire).  The majority of their fundraising efforts are to purchase their current location in Alameda, California.

It’s hard to find many amenities in the Iveywood neighborhood in Oakland.  Having a tree lot that delivers during the holidays certainly is a special treat.  If you can, support this local organization.
