Some service members stationed overseas will be receiving a present to give their military base a more holiday vibe. FedEx and the Christmas Spirit Foundation have partnered up another year to deliver Christmas trees to military personnel around the world.
Launched in 2005, Trees for Troops will be sending out more than 18,000 real Christmas trees to service members and their families. Every branch in the military will be covered at more than 65 bases.
In its 11th year, Trees for Troops has delivered more than 157,000 live Christmas trees to service members in 17 countries.
FedEx volunteers prepared 200 trees on Nov. 17 during the initiative’s official kickoff in Thorntown, Ind. The Indiana Christmas Tree Growers Association donated the trees, which will be delivered to military personnel in the Middle East and South Pacific by FedEx Express.
