FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Trees for Troops Official Locations Ready to Provide Christmas Trees
St. Louis, MO, October 4, 2023 – The Christmas SPIRIT Foundation (CSF) has launched its 19th annual Trees for Troops® program for the 2023 holiday season. To date, 293,392 fresh, farm-grown Christmas trees have been provided to military members and families stationed abroad and domestically through Trees for Troops®. Trees are donated by farms and local sponsors.
Individuals and organizations are invited to participate and show their own appreciation to these families by visiting www.treesfortroops.org, where a list of participating tree farms and retail lots called “Official Locations” can be found. Official Locations of Trees for Troops® have committed to taking tree donations from customers and/or local sponsors to add to the program culminating in what is called “Trees for Troops Weekend.” Immediately following, on December 4, all donated trees from these locations will be picked up by FedEx Freight and delivered to bases during week two of the program. Since shoppers are busy during the holiday season, many of these Official Locations also offer online tree purchase options for shopper convenience!
Donors can choose to write a holiday greeting for recipient families on a special tag to be attached to each gifted tree. A list of participating Official Locations is located on the weblink shown above. Once trees arrive at a base and are unloaded, each base determines how/when to distribute the trees to their personnel.
The mission of the Christmas Spirit Foundation is to advance the Christmas Spirit for kids, families and the environment through programs and activities. With the Trees for Troops® program, we achieve that mission, one Christmas tree at a time.
