BURDINES DONATES DECORATED CHRISTMAS TREES TO CHARITIES THROUGHOUT FLORIDA

 MIAMI, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Decked with yards of shimmering garland, twinkling lights and handmade ornaments, truckloads of Christmas trees will brighten the holiday season for 60 charitable organizations throughout Florida, courtesy of Burdines' first annual "Share the Season" event.
 The company's employee volunteer council, Partners in Time, has donated their time and talent to purchase and decorate the faux trees that they hope will bring joy to the various charities for years to come.
 "It's our way of spreading the good feelings that the holiday season brings," said Ann Ruppert, Burdines' vice president of Human Resources. "Our volunteer employees have enjoyed the satisfaction of creating gifts that will surely brighten the holidays for so many people."
 The charities, chosen by Burdines employees, will receive their festooned trees during each organization's holiday party. "Share the Season" is the first in a series of ongoing Partners in Time events that will take place in Florida communities throughout the year.
