Trees for Troops Loading Event Volunteers
“Delivering the spirit of Christmas to military families

– one Christmas Tree at a time.”

Share the Christmas Spirit with a military family this Christmas. You can donate a REAL Christmas tree to a military family through the Trees for Troops program. We will write your personal message on the tag that gets attached to the Christmas tree you donate. Scroll Down For Donate Button.

FedEx Freight delivered the 300,000th tree for the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation’s annual Trees for Troops® program. The milestone tree was presented at Fort Liberty on Dec. 1, 2023.

2023 Trees for Troops: A great big huge THANK YOU to all our 2023 Trees for Troops volunteers: you guys came out and braved a freezing cold morning on Monday, November 27th, 2023 to load 361 Christmas trees and 354 wreaths donated with love, that shipped to:
* Rock Island Arsenal (IL)
* Whiteman AFB (MO)
* JBSA Randolph (TX)

This year’s Christmas trees were donated by local Christmas tree farmers including The Old Grove Christmas Tree Farm of Caledonia, Circle B Tree Farm of Battle Creek, and Armintrout’s and Badger Evergreen of Allegan, along with the Christmas trees from Wahmhoff Farms, which included over 100 Christmas trees donated by civilians. We are grateful to our servicemen and women and their families who support them, and to those folks and farmers who donated Christmas trees and/or came out to help us load the FedEx trucks. Thank you and Merry Christmas!
