Trees for Troops

trees-for-troops-at-hgOur 2017 Trees for Troops event has ended! Thank you to everyone who donated a tree to send to a military family!

Donate a real Christmas Tree to a Military family for only $31.00!

Imagine somewhere on the other side of the world, a group of U.S. troops gathered around a fresh, real Christmas tree that was express shipped from the states. Or imagine how a military family of a deployed loved one would feel if they received a real Christmas tree, given by a caring family they have never met.

This is the mission of “Trees for Troops”, a national charitable campaign that provides real Christmas trees to members of the armed forces and their families at more than 60 military bases in the U.S. and overseas. Since 2005, Trees for Troops has provided more than 122,000 Christmas Trees to military families and troops in the United States and overseas.

2017 will be Homestead Gardens’ 5th year participating in the Trees for Troops program and we hope to make it our most successful year yet! We are proud to say that through the support of our customers, last year we were able to donate 353 Christmas trees. This year our goal is 385, and with your help we think we can do even better. We’ve made it easier than ever to donate a tree by accepting donations in all of our stores, online, and over the phone.

For your donation of $31.00 a 6-8 foot Balsam Fir will be delivered by FedEx to one of over 60 military bases in the U.S. and overseas. A card with your Christmas wish or message of gratitude will accompany your tree. Donations are tax deductible, you can donate as many trees as you’d like, and for every tree donated by our customers, Homestead Gardens will make a $5 donation to the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation.
