FORT HOOD, TX — FedEx Freight will deliver more than 500 real Christmas trees to military families at 8 a.m. on December 11, 2020, at Hood Stadium as part of the Trees for Troops program.

Since 2005, more than 243,955 free, farm-grown Christmas trees have been provided to troops and military families in the United States and overseas through Trees for Troops.

In keeping with COVID-19 safety procedures, a change for this year’s give away of trees is recipients must obtain a voucher with a designated time slot at the Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers Headquarters (Bldg. 9212) prior to Dec. 11, 2020.

Vouchers are currently available from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. weekdays at the BOSS HQS for E1-E4 Soldiers and Families until Dec. 4, 2020.

After Dec. 4, military active duty or dependent identification cardholders may obtain a voucher while supplies last.

The voucher must be presented on the day of the event to receive a tree. Social distancing and masks are required when picking up a tree.
