The IA BBQ Society teams up with Hawgeyes BBQ and Cookies BBQ Sauce to provide Christmas Trees and other holiday items for those who need it most. Donations of clothing, decorations and other items complement the trees and Cookies BBQ Sauce comes through with BBQ pork, candy and other food items. It is a great way for us to give back to the community and help add a little holiday spirit for those that can really use the help. Even in bad weather, the line can stretch for blocks. It will take place on Saturday, December 7th, 2013 in the Salvation Army parking lot on 6th Ave. in Des Moines (map).
