Romagnoli’s Christmas Tree Farm and Trees for Troops brings military families together in the true spirit of Christmas; thanks to the generous donations of customers, Romagnoli’s Christmas Tree Farm provided 166 Christmas trees to U.S. troops and military families through Trees for Troops, a nationwide program of the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation in conjunction with the National Christmas Tree Association, and Christmas Tree Farmers of Central, with FedEx.
Last holiday season, more than 18,000 trees were delivered to 65 military bases in the U.S. and overseas. This brought the total to more than 176,000 Real Christmas Trees delivered through Trees for Troops since 2005.
“Trees for Troops is a very rewarding program to everyone involved,” said Richard Darling, Christmas SPIRIT Foundation chairman. “It is such an honor to have the opportunity to say thank you to our troops, and help ensure military families have the kind of joyful, traditional Christmas memories that we would wish for America’s heroes.”
Each year, hundreds of military families visit the Trees for Troops website and Facebook page to leave heartfelt thank you messages and pictures of their families celebrating around their beautifully decorated Christmas tree. For example, a message from a Camp Pendleton family read, “Thank you for our beautiful Christmas tree! We weren’t sure what we were going to do this year…Trees for Troops was an answer to our prayers.”
If you missed this year’s Nov. 23 cut off for donating a tree at Romagnoli’s, you can still help support Trees for Troops by making a tax-deductible donation (www.treesfortroops.org) or by purchasing a Christmas tree at various farm and retail locations across the nation during Trees for Troops Weekend, Dec. 2 through 4, 2016.
