Trees For Troops

By Julie Hawkins. CREATED Nov 28, 2012

DES MOINES, Iowa - Iowans are helping spruce up the holidays for members of the military.

The Des Moines Register reports more than 80 Christmas trees are headed from Iowa to servicemen and women and their families overseas and at military bases here in the states.


It's part of the Trees For Troops Project, which is a program of the Christmas Spirit Foundation.  More than 103,000 free trees have delivered by FedEx to more than 60 military bases in the U.S. and overseas, since the program started in 2005.
