Dull's Tree Farm, Nov 18, 2014
The Christmas Spirit Foundation is a charitable branch of the National Christmas Tree Association. The Christmas Spirit Foundation’s mission is to advance the spirit of Christmas year-round for kids, families and the environment.
Indiana has participated in the Trees for Troops program for the past eight years and will be shipped out approximately 200 donated trees as part of the 2014 Trees for Troops project. FedEx Corporation partners with the Christmas Spirit Foundation to provide all the shipping for trees to be picked up from tree farms across the U.S. and delivered to military bases stateside and overseas. Approximately 17,000 trees will be donated and shipped throughout the U.S. this year.
Indiana sent trees to military bases in Guam and Afghanistan. Tree farms all across Indiana donated the trees to be shipped out from one state pickup point. The trees were processed and shipped out on November 18th and delivered to the various bases the first weekend of December. This is just one way Christmas tree farms give back to our community.
