Is there a military family that you would like to nominate for the Decorated Family program? If you nominate a family Christmas Decor will try to decorate their home for the holidays!

Each holiday season, each Christmas Decor franchisees nationwide donate their products, resources and time to decorate the homes of local military as a part of the Decorated Family Program.

Trees for Troops

Trees for Troops, a program of the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation, provides Real Christmas Trees to Armed Forces members and their families in the U.S. and troops deployed in the Middle East. Through contributions, donations of real Christmas trees, the work of many volunteers and the generous in-kind support of our shipping partner FedEx, Trees for Troops has brought the true spirit of Christmas to thousands of deserving service men and women and their families.

Since 2005, more than 103,000 farm-grown Christmas trees have been delivered. The program has touched the lives of military families at more than 60 bases across the U.S. and overseas.
