THORNTOWN, Ind. -- Volunteers are coming together to spread some holiday cheer to service members and their families though the 13th annual "Trees for Troops" event.
Locally, about 250 trees were donated by members of the Indiana Christmas Tree Growers Association. Organizers say those trees will be sent to service members stationed in Afghanistan, Guam and Puerto Rico.
As a whole, more than 17,000 trees will be delivered to U.S. military bases this year. Some trees will even include personal messages of thanks and ornaments. The program is also reaching a milestone with plans to deliver their 200,000th tree as an organization, covering every branch of the military.
