LADY'S ISLAND (WTOC) - Christmas is a special time of year, but it can also be a tough time for many families struggling to make ends meet.

That's why Grayco on Lady's Island is doing their part to brighten holiday spirits. Starting Thursday, Grayco is giving away all of its left over Christmas trees for free. They still have more than 250 trees at the store in all shapes and sizes. They want anyone who needs a tree to have one.

"We don't want any family to go without this year. Rather than just taking them to the mulcher or anything like that or getting rid of them, we figured just stop by and get one," said Dennis Williford, Grayco's assistant manager.

They'll start giving away the trees starting 7 a.m. If they still have trees left, they plan to do the same on Christmas Eve.
