The holidays can be really hard on a military family. You are away from family and friends. A spouse maybe deployed. FedEx and Christmas Spirit foundation are looking to bring holiday cheer to military families. They have partnered up again for Trees For Troops. I think this is so Awesome. If we had not already put up our tree we would be going to ours on the 6th for pick up. Below you will find some info from FedEx.
o FedEx and the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation are once again joining together to make the holidays a little brighter for America’s service members and their families with the Trees for Troops program. www.christmasspiritfoundation.org
o This year marks the 10th anniversary of the program, which brings together FedEx, the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation and tree farmers across America to deliver real Christmas trees to service members stationed across the U.S. and overseas.
o During the busy weeks leading up to Christmas, FedEx will deliver more than 17,000 live Christmas trees to more than 60 military bases across the U.S. and overseas (Middle East and South Pacific)
o Trees for Troops is part of FedEx Special Delivery, a nationwide program that supports local organizations by donating transportation services and other assistance to help them fulfill their missions. Since the Trees for Troops program launched in 2005, FedEx has shipped more than 139,000 real Christmas trees to service members and their families
You can help by going and donating to the Christmas Spirit foundation. You can also tweet using the hashtag #treesfortroops with message of support. They will print them and they will tag the trees with them.
FedEx sent us a gift box as payment for sharing this post.
