The Christmas spirit is still alive in Paragould

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT-TV) - Christmas may be months behind us. . .but the season of giving continues!

The relay for life team at Lowe's in Paragould is putting an unusual tree in front of area businesses.

It's called the "Tree of Hope" and is every color of the rainbow!

It's purpose is to encourage local businesses to donate to the American Cancer Society.

For the bargain price of fifteen dollars, Lowe's team members will remove the tree from your property.

For an additional ten dollars they'll deliver it to the business of your choice and for thirty-five dollars they'll promise to never bring it back.

Deborah Smith is with the relay team and says there's an additional reason they're supporting the American Cancer Society, "We have an inspiration on our team. Her name is Carolyn Hanner. She's been diagnosed with cancer and this is a way of supporting her."

The Lowe's team will be surprising businesses across Greene County until the relay for life on June 4th.
