FedEx Corp. is honoring the dedication of America’s servicemen and women by delivering happier holiday memories to military members and their families through the annual Trees for Troops and Wreaths Across America programs.
Now in its seventh year, Trees for Troops brings together FedEx, the Christmas Spirit Foundation and tree farmers across America to transport thousands of real Christmas trees to service members stationed overseas, as well as on military bases in the United States.
Wreaths Across America, a program supported by FedEx Ground since 2009, honors veterans’ service by placing holiday wreaths on departed service members’ graves in cemeteries across the world, including Arlington National Cemetery.
“FedEx may be in the midst of our busiest time of year, but we’re pleased to put our global resources to work in ways that reflect our deep appreciation for all that military men and women have given to this country,” says Bill Logue, president and chief executive officer of FedEx Freight. “FedEx is proud to leverage our networks and logistical expertise to support programs such as Trees for Troops and Wreaths Across America to honor military men, women and their families this season.”
