Trees for Troops

This is an organization that gives free Christmas trees to military families.  The initial program sent a live tree to soldiers who were deployed to try to bring a little holiday cheer to men and women away from their families.  Today military families who are separated from the partners can also get free trees.  Each year trees are given out to military families on the first weekend of December.  If you are a military spouse that would like to receive the free tree contacts the organization early.
