"Trees for Troops" still available for purchase

CORDELE, GA (WALB) - You still have time to buy a Christmas tree to support our troops.

Southern Christmas Tree Farms in Cordele is "Trees for Troops" for $35 each. The trees will be delivered to active duty military families with a personal note of thanks. The farm has been participating in "Trees for Troops" since 2006, donating at least 250 trees each year.

"We want to make their Christmas great and can you imagine how excited they'll be to get an American grown tree when they are overseas and their celebrating their Christmas with their families and can't be home," said Lynn Chavarria, Southern Christmas Tree Farms Manager.

You have until Wednesday to purchase a tree.

Fed Ex will be there Wednesday morning at 8:00 a.m. to pick up the trees to deliver them to families.
