Thank you to our customers who helped us donate 590 fresh-cut Christmas Trees to military troops and their families as part of the 2018 Trees for Troops program.
Since 2012, English Gardens has partnered with Christmas SPIRIT Foundation and FedEx to provide a 6 to 7-foot fresh-cut Christmas tree to military bases throughout the country and overseas. Trees donated from English Gardens were sent to the Great Lakes Naval Station in Illinois and New Yorl State Armory in Syracuse, NY.
"We are grateful for the support of our customers who contribute to this program," says John Darin, President. "This is a wonderful program for those who sacrifice much for the freedom of our country."
For every tree donated, English Gardens donated $5 to support the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation’s annual program.
Since participating in the program, English Gardens customers have donated nearly 2,400 Christmas Trees to the Trees for Troops program. Nationally, the program has provided more than 208,720 Christmas Trees to military families and troops in the United States and overseas.
