Trees for Troops, a program of the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation and FedEx Corp., is preparing to kick off its 2012 season, with plans to deliver 16,000 Real Christmas Trees to military service members and their families throughout the United States and overseas.
The Richardsons donate 25 trees each year and spend the day helping service men and women at Great Lakes Naval Station choose their perfect tree. We have several collection boxes on the farm where you may donate monies to support the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation. You may also purchase a tree to add to our donation and in addition, add your personal message on a card we will provide.Three ways you can donate:
Visit Richardson Christmas Trees and pick out a tree and write your own message on cards we provide. The Fed Ex truck will be parked on our farm the first week of December. You will be able to purchase a tree up through the departure date.
Donate $$$ to the Christmas Spirit Foundation. This foundation supports Trees for Troops and other programs to spread the Christmas spirit. If you choose this option please visit www.christmasspiritfoundation.org to make your donation.
Our farm donates 25 Christmas trees as part of the nationwide program to deliver trees to troops all across the U.S. and oversees. Our trees are being picked up at the end of the first week in December and distributed to military service members and their families at Great Lakes Naval Base.
