SALT LAKE CITY -- Several organizations participated in an event that donates Christmas trees to single fathers.

The event began Saturday at King's Gallery, located at 3419 South State St., and so far more than 50 donated trees have been given to single dads in the Salt Lake City area.

KidsLab founder John Hansen was one of those involved with the event, and he said they seek to spread Christmas cheer.

"If you know a single dad that doesn't have a tree..lets get him one before Christmas so that he has an opportunity to celebrate that with his children," he said.

Participants in the event included The Lab/KidLabs, King's Gallery, Home Depot, Uniforms West, J&T Trees and Our Legacy Vision Team.
