trees for troops

I thought it fitting in this window between these holidays of being thankful and giving to let you know about an effort that combines those very things - Trees for Troops. Each year, Trees for Troops provides thousands of farm-grown Christmas trees to armed forces members and their families in the U.S. and stationed overseas with the generous help of FedEx.

November 30 - December 2 is Trees for Troops Weekend - here's a whole list of locations participating nationally and in the Boston area, Mahoney's will be hosting their event where you can select a 7-foot Balsam Fir tree to be donated for just $25. Not near one of the garden centers participating? No worries, you can donate online.

Always a sucker for a great infographic - check this one out over the FedEx blog
