Fort Sill Teams with Christmas Spirit Foundation for Trees for Troops
FORT SILL, OK – The Christmas SPIRIT Foundation, the Tree Growers Association, and Fed Ex Freight has teamed up to provide and deliver real Christmas trees to military families on Dec. 11 at the Fort Sill Recycling Center. Distribution of the trees will begin on Dec. 12 from 7:30a.m. to 5:00p.m and continue if trees are left on Dec. 13 during normal business hours.
The distribution of the trees will take place in Bldg. 3321 located on Naylor Road, just west of the old Recycle location on the corner of Sheridan & Naylor. The trees will be distributed on a first come-first served basis to active duty Military Families.
In keeping with COVID-19 safety procedures, we have made the following
Adjustments: volunteers will fill out the check in sheet for families or individuals can save time by coming by Bldg. 3321, Dec. 3-4, between 8:00a.m.-4:00p.m. to pre-check in. Only allow six families in the warehouse will be allowed at a time to select their trees and ask that families maintain physical distancing while waiting.
