ST. CROIX — As residents across the island prepare for the fast-approaching Christmas holiday, the owners of Plaza Extra West remind them that they will once again be selling live Christmas trees to benefit the Lutheran Social Services of the Virgin Islands’ Queen Louise Home for Children.

Beginning today, and again on Dec. 7, the second annual tree fundraising sale will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. under the tent at Plaza Extra West, next to the recycling drop-off location on the store’s west lawn.
