Huntersville’s favorite Christmas decoration, Coneweed, has done more than just gain social media fame: it’s also raised nearly $15,000 for those in need.

That’s according to the Huntersville Fire Department. The amount is thanks to apparel being sold online, donations and a dollar-for-dollar match via HopeMatch.

Coneweed was removed by the NCDOT yesterday, gaining even more social media attention as fans sought its return. A similar branch was eventually delivered to the Huntersville Fire Department which has been its caretaker.
