Orrs students purchase “Trees for Troops”

Orrs_Trees for Troops_Evergreen Christmas Tree FarmOrrs Elementary students are visiting Evergreen Christmas Tree Farm this morning to pick out Christmas trees to send to U.S. Troops stationed around the world.   Each class raised money to purchase “Trees for Troops,” a program of the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation that provides farm-grown Christmas Trees to armed forces members and their families in the U.S. and stationed overseas.

This year, Trees for Troops hopes to deliver more than 17,000 trees in total with a majority of those going to military families stationed at military installations across the U.S.  The deliveries will take place at more than 60 bases, covering every branch of the armed services.

Anyone wishing to donate a tree to a military member or family may do so Thanksgiving day through Dec. 8 by visiting Evergreen Christmas Tree Farm, located at 484 Baptist Camp Road in Griffin.  For more information call 770-228-5344 or visit www.christmasspiritfoundation.org. Ω
