Over 1,500 military families will have a merrier Christmas this year thanks to those that donated a Christmas tree through the Trees for Troops program at Mahoney’s Garden Centers, including the location near the Wayland-Weston border.
Mahoney’s Trees for Troops campaign ran from Veteran’s Day to Dec. 2, allowing donors to stop in at any of their eight locations, or call a hotline, to buy a Christmas tree for a military family. This year, a record number of trees were donated, almost twice as many as last year, making Mahoney’s the number one generator of trees for the Trees for Troops program in North America.
“We want to thank you to everyone that donated a tree for Trees for Troops,” said Paul Waxman, Director of Marketing for Mahoney’s. “This is a program that we hold very close to our hearts, and we’re so proud that our community has been so generous to our military families.”
The trees were picked-up direct and fresh from Mahoney’s Christmas tree farm on Dec. 4, courtesy of Fed Ex, and are on their way to bases along our east coast.
