Chesterfield, Mo. - Trees for Troops has delivered more than 50,000 fresh Christmas trees grown by American farmers to military families across the nation and around the world since 2005.   It is a program of the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation (CSF), a non-for-profit charity, along with support from FedEx Corp. Since its inception, citizens have expressed interest in participating in the program, but didn’t know how to do that since they didn’t farm trees or work for Fed Ex.

Now in its fifth year, Trees for Troops offers a new way for others to support the program. CSF is recruiting volunteers to coordinate locally-hosted fundraising events during Veteran’s Day week. These grassroots events, called “TweetUp4Troops,” are a great way to show support for veterans, raise money for the Trees for Troops program and have fun! Whether you organize a car wash or trivia night, sell raffle tickets or find a creative way to allow your business to support the program, all contributions raised go to support  the Trees for Troops program and military families. To get involved by hosting an event in your area, visit www.TweetUp4Troops.org and fill out a Local Host Registration Form.
