Trees For Troops

| November 21, 2013 | 0 Comments

T4T_logoMilitary life can be challenging, but the holidays are even more difficult for military members and their families, especially if they’re stationed apart. Make this holiday season a little brighter by sending military troops and their families a Christmas tree through the “Trees for Troops” program.

Starting immediately, visit any Homestead Gardens location to send your support by purchasing a Trees for Troops tree for $24.50. Special tree cards are available to write a note of thanks or holiday wishes to the family. You can also donate a tree through their website www.homesteadgardens.com or simply call Homestead at (410) 798-5000.

This is Homestead’s first year of partnering with the Christmas Spirit Foundation to bring this special gift to those who sacrifice so much for us throughout the year. The program touches many lives. The simple gesture of buying a tree means much more to a military family who faces incredible challenges each day.

The event ends Sunday, December 9, when Homestead will collect all of the notes from the trees and overnight them to the tree farm. The Trees for Troops program, in coordination with FedEx, handles the rest. In December, thousands of trees from all over the United States will be delivered to troops and families on over 60 military bases, worldwide.

Homestead Gardens will also contribute an additional $5 for every tree sold to the Christmas Spirit Foundation.

Visit Homestead Gardens in Davidsonville or Severna Park, visit www.homesteadgardens.com or call (410) 798-5000 before  December 9th to donate a tree to the trees for troops program.
