Christmas trees decorated by seven nonprofit groups from DuPage and Kane counties will grace the always palatial rooms of the Robert R. McCormick Museum through Dec. 29 at Cantigny Park in Wheaton.
All seven groups participating in the Community Trees display, which opened Tuesday, have missions consistent with the McCormick Foundation's goals of helping veterans, children and animals, organizers said.
Volunteers from DuPage Public Action to Deliver Shelter, Honor Flight Chicago, Celebrate Differences, DuPage County Area Project, Glen Ellyn Children's Resource Center, Friends of the DuPage County Forest Preserve District and Save-A-Vet.org decorated the themed trees.
Adult visitors to the museum are able to vote for their favorite tree. Each participating charity received $2,500 from the McCormick Foundation and the tree receiving the most votes will garner an additional $2,500 for its cause.
This is the fourth year the museum has sponsored the Community Trees exhibit.
The museum is open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays (it's closed Thanksgiving, Nov. 29 and Dec. 24 and 25) at 1S151 Winfield Road.
