Seems like a nice way to spend some time early in the holiday season: go and look at decorated Christmas trees. 

Somehow, it's become a big fundraiser for Medford's Providence Community Health Foundation. 

The Foundation's annual Providence Festival of Trees has raised millions of dollars over more than two decades. 

PCHF Executive Director Katie Shepard joins us once again to explain the logistics and outcomes of the annual bash.
