Operation Evergreen, Ohio Christmas Trees Overseas to military personnel is in its 23rd year. This program was set up to provide Christmas trees to those serving away from home during the holiday season by the Ohio Christmas Tree Association. Starting in 1995, 29 trees were sent to troops serving in Bosnia. In the years that followed trees were sent to Kosovo, Qatar, Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan. The number of trees sent has varied from the 29 up to 320 trees. Estimates are that the program has provided over 5000 trees to units serving overseas. Since 1999, hand made ornaments, decorations and Christmas cards made by students, civic groups and other private citizens have been included with the trees. A 100 tree donation for the 2018 Christmas Season has been offered to ARCENT, to be scheduled for shipment into Kuwait in November. A minimum of 2000 to 5000 of our troops get to enjoy these touches of ‘home’ each year within their units, on bases and at the R & R areas. Our organization needs help this year to cover the expenses of sending a Christmas tree overseas. Each tree costs $150.00. Please help send this Christmas gift to those serving overseas!
