Taking O Tannenbaum to the Troops
While the holidays are the busiest time for FedEx, one of the most special holiday gifts we are delivering this season is a Christmas tree. Thousands of them, to be exact.
Trees for Troops brings together FedEx, the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation and tree farmers across America to transport thousands of real Christmas trees to U.S. military service members stationed overseas, as well members of the armed forces and their families on military bases in the U.S.
Over the past eight years, we’ve come together to provide for the donation and delivery of over 103,000 trees for troops around the world. By delivering these fresh Christmas Trees, we strive to spread holiday cheer among the dedicated servicemen and women in uniform, whether they are serving overseas in the Middle East, or at home with their families.
As in previous years, the public may also support Trees for Troops by donating to the program and/or purchasing fresh trees at one of more than 30 Christmas Tree retail locations nationally during the official Trees for Troops weekend, Nov. 30 - Dec. 2. Donated trees will be added to the program’s planned deliveries to U.S. bases during 2012. More information on how to get involved can be found a http://www.treesfortroops.org/.
Together, we will honor the dedication of America’s servicemen and women by decking the halls, homes and barracks of those that serve our country.
