FedEX delivers 18,000 Christmas Trees to U.S. Service members and families

- FedEx and the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation are joining forces again for a special delivery to America’s service members and their families with the Trees for Troops program.

Since the Trees for Troops program launched in 2005, FedEx has shipped more than 176,000 real Christmas trees to service members and their families—covering every branch of the military at close to 65 bases in 17 countries.

"We have had an amazing year with Trees for Troops! This program is a huge highlight each year with the Christmas tree growers who are able to donate Christmas trees from their farms," said Ann O'Connor, Executive Director of Christmas SPIRIT Foundation.

This year marks the 12th anniversary of the 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.
