Trees for Troops trucks to Camp LeJeune PDF Print
Thursday, 06 December 2007 21:29
Trees for Troops sends its final shipment today at Cline Church Nursery on Highway 221 in Fleetwood. North Carolina Christmas Tree Association Director Linda Gragg says it's an important charity for local farmers to participate in.

While the war itself causes controversy, she says, Gragg thinks everyone agrees it's important to support both the troops and their families.

The initiative began four years ago, and it's been growing ever since.

Over 1,000 trees will be distributed to family members of deployed servicemen, thanks to Trees for Troops. Last week, trees were shipped to Fort Bliss, Texas from Linville River Nursery. Today's trees are going to Camp LeJeune. It all happens around 9 a.m.
