BermudaXmasTrees.com was founded by Pete Schindel of Bermuda BrickYard in 2009 as a way to assist local charities with fund raising. The idea started with one container load of Christmas trees and worked with a single charity to raise funds to aid in their activities.
After this experience the idea of continuing to bring in a container of Christmas trees at a reasonable price that were delivered to Bermuda while continuing to assist local charities was a wonderful way to give back. The result is BermudaXmasTrees.com. To date, we have raised in excess of $100,000 for donation to local Bermuda charities.
Historically, the focus of the BrickYard fund raising activity has been to assist local charities by focusing on the youth of Bermuda and programs that support learning and skill enhancing. Due to the shifting needs in the community this year the program will support local food and energy programs for those in need.
