Mission Statement

‘Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen.’

    Allow me to introduce our organization “Trees-4-Branches”. Our mission is simple: “Support our Troops”.  We were formed in late 2008 with a goal of sending fresh cut, Oregon grown, Christmas trees to American Troops deployed abroad.  With the help of many generous donations, we were able to send over 400 Christmas trees to our brave warriors the past 5 seasons. We have also expanded our efforts by sending care packages as well. It has been a huge success and judging from the response we have received back from the Troops, a great morale booster!

    We are now beginning our 2013 Christmas drive with a goal of sending 100+ trees to our Troops as well as care packages and we are looking for your help.

    Our organization is completely volunteer and we work entirely from donations, with 100 % of our funds used to support the Troops. Christmas trees and care packages are being sent to as many Troops as our resources will allow. We are looking for cash donations to cover the $ 70.00 cost of the trees and postage. Each tree sent is complete with stand, lights. We can also use care package items.

    The feedback we have received from the Troops and their families says our efforts have definitely brightened the days of many very deserving military personnel and helped bring a little bit of home to them during their deployments.

    It is also possible for a family or an organization to sponsor a tree for a specific Soldier to be sent in their name..

    We also have red "Support our Troops" tee shirts for showing support on “Red Shirt Friday” available for a $15.00 donation. We also love getting care package items that we collect and send to the troops.
