HOLT — First Baptist Church of Holt’s youth group will get a financial boost from Oliver's Nursery, which will donate all proceeds from its December Christmas tree and wreath sales.

Proceeds will benefit an upcoming youth Bible study at Camp Whispering Pines in Citronelle, Ala., according to Youth Minister Eric Reid.

“Along with everything else, prices are going up,” Reid said. “It’s $195 per student for the week — which is actually one of the lower costing camps.” Some Bible camps cost up to $400 per participant, he said.

Funds would help families who can’t cover the costs, event organizers said, adding they appreciate the assistance.

“I can’t say enough for what (the nursery) has done for us,” Reid said. “They have been a blessing.”

"We like to give back to the community," nursery manager Jennifer Oliver said.

Youth group members will volunteer at the nursery's Country Christmas event, which offers a lighted Christmas display and family-friendly activities. The celebration runs 4-8 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays this month, through Dec. 22.
