Trees for Heroes

Trees for Heroes is a program for active duty families that lets them experience one of the timeless traditions of the holiday season at a local Christmas Tree Farm. In appreciation of our sponsors, families can spend the day selecting that perfect Christmas Tree for their home, creating season arts and crafts, pictures with Santa, and enjoying holiday fellowship.
