MANSFIELD TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – Donaldson’s Greenhouse and Nursery is making sure that United States armed forces members have Christmas trees with the annual “Trees for Troops” program.
Trees for Troops, is a program of the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation, provides free, farm-grown Christmas trees to United States armed forces members in all branches of the military and their families, through donations, sponsorships, grants and the work of many volunteers.
Christmas tree growers have been providing free trees for military families for years. In 2005, FedEx contacted the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation, the charitable branch of the National Christmas Tree Association, and wanted to be involved in the foundation’s mission. Together the two organizations expanded the idea of providing Christmas Trees to military families, and Trees for Troops was born.
Donaldson’s Greenhouse and Nursery, located at 178 Airport Road, has been taking part in the Trees for Troops program since 2016 and have donated hundreds of trees to this initiative with the help of our generous and caring customers.
For a $35.00 donation, you can send a fresh cut Christmas tree, with your own personal message, to an active duty service member and their family.
Donaldson’s will be offering this opportunity until December 5 and then a Fed-Ex trailer will be loaded with the trees and taken to the service members stationed at Fort Hood Texas.
