SANDY SPRINGS, GA — Riverwood International Charter School’s Baseball team is selling premium Fraser Fir Christmas trees during its annual fundraiser. Customers are invited to order trees online at this link, where they can also request delivery.

After ordering online, they can opt to select their tree at the tree lot Nov. 27-Nov. 30, or the team will select one for them. The team said it doesn't anticipate being able to offer walk-up sales, so they encourage folks to pre-order securely online.

“For over 20 years, Riverwood Baseball has been selling the finest Christmas Trees in Sandy Springs. We have many customers who have been with us for all those years. These kids had a rough spring with their baseball season cut short, but we were determined to keep this Sandy Springs tradition alive," said Riverwood Baseball Coach Trey Henson. "I couldn’t be prouder of this team and their perseverance as student-athletes through the pandemic. We look forward to seeing many of our long-time customers, with our COVID-friendly set-up this year.”

Riverwood baseball players and parents volunteer at the tree lot, helping customers select the trees that they ordered, fresh cutting the trunks, and loading them onto cars and trucks. They also deliver trees for a small fee, another advantage during the coronavirus pandemic.

Trees can be picked up at Riverwood International Charter School, 5900 Raider Drive in Sandy Springs. COVID protocols will be observed for pick up.

The Riverwood Raider Baseball Christmas Tree Sale is a more than year fundraiser for the public school’s baseball program, which has seen 16 visits to the state playoffs and boasts a number of alumni on college and Major League Baseball rosters.

Purchasers are encouraged to come early for the best selection. For more information, including dates/times for the tree lot, go to bit.ly/RiverwoodChristmasTrees, or email RaiderBaseballLegacy@gmail.com.
