Christmas trees are coming in truck by truck for one special annual event.
Members of the military will be lining up around the block to pick up their free Christmas trees Wednesday afternoon. Trees for Troops and Lincoln Military Housing are teaming up Wednesday for the 10th annual Christmas Tree Giveaway for military families.
Families who pre-registered for the event will be able to pick out a tree at the Community Services Office on Wellington Way near Genesee Avenue starting at 3:00 p.m. Event organizers are expecting more than 200 vehicles to line up to pick up their trees.
Lincoln Military Housing employees will be volunteering to help families with picking their tree and securing it to their car. As families wait in their car to pick up the tree, Lincoln will provide entertainment, snacks, water, holiday music, and holiday gifts for children.
Similar events nationwide are delivering more than 16,000 farm-grown Christmas Trees to all branches of the military. The event is sponsored by the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation and FedEx.
