In a Mar Vista holiday special, Living Christmas has agreed to donate 10% of tree rental proceeds to your favorite Mar Vista school -- and you will receive a 5% discount when you order your tree with a Mar Vista coupon code.
Prices range from $65 for a 3-4' living Pine, Cedar, or Cypress -- to $110 for a 5-6' tree. Check the donation code for your school below, or use the code "lausd" to split across Mar Vista's 5 LAUSD schools -- and enter the code when you order your tree online. Don't delay as supplies are limited. Spread the word and help your school raise money this holiday season!
