Making the Holidays Special for Military Families, One Tree at a Time

November 10, 2016

For the 12th consecutive year, the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation is joining forces with FedEx for special deliveries to America’s service members and their families through the Trees for Troops program.

Thanks to the generosity of tree farmers across North America, more than 18,000 real Christmas trees will be donated and delivered to close to 65 military bases during the busy weeks leading up to Christmas.

Minter’s Farm, out of Fayetteville, Georgia, is one of over 100 farms participating in the program this year.

For Minter’s Manager Stephanie Adamek, it’s a very special time of year, “It’s great to give back to somebody who has done so much for us.  I mean, they’re our heroes.”

The Trees for Troops story begins at the tree farm.  Watch how Stephanie and her father, Rick Minter, prepare trees for America’s heroes.

    I think this is an incredibly thoughtful program. Keep up the great work, farmers and FedEx! Thank you to all those who are serving, have served and who are training to serve. Your sacrifices do not go unappreciated.
