10 years ago, my wife Denise and I started a Christmas Tree and Wreath Fundraising company helping schools, churches and other non-profit organizations raise much needed funds for their programs. To date that company has helped these groups raise over $7,500,000 dollars for their efforts. As a way to give back to our military families, in 2013 we began supporting the Trees for Troops© program. This provided an additional fundraising opportunity while supporting our heroes who serve and their families at Christmas time. Over the last five years, our groups have donated over 16,000 real Christmas trees to the national Trees for Troops© organization. In 2016, our team launched a non profit organization, CORE-934, Inc. Our dream is to increase the number of Christmas trees provided to our military, eventually reaching as many as 50,000 additional families per year. Our joy, is to “Bring Home the Spirit of Christmas” and a gift of gratitude to all those who serve in honor of their sacrifices for our nation’s freedom.
