The holiday season is still weeks away, but it's the perfect time to help a local Christmas tree grower answer a call to duty.
For the fifth year in a row, the Whitehouse Christmas Tree Farm is taking part in "Operation Evergreen." They're donating 50 trees to troops serving overseas as well as decorations to send. You can even buy a tree and send it over with a special note.
"We do get responses. Thanks for thinking of us, bringing some cheer to us...supporting us."
You can donate garland, non-breakable ornaments, tree toppers, and tree stands. The drive ends Nov. 2. Items can be dropped off at the following locations:
Clear Channel Radio
Maumee City Schools
Anthony Wayne Schools
Dave's Home Cooked Foods
Swanton Healthcare/Retirement Center
Bridges Community Academy (Tiffin)
Cub Scout Pack 400 (in Mccutcheonville)
