Trees for Troops

Once again this year the Christmas Spirit Foundation is joining with FedEx to provide farm-grown Christmas trees to troops and military families in the U.S. and abroad. There are several ways to participate. The first is to buy a tree online through the foundation's "One Thousand Tree Campaign." BUT NOTE THERE ARE ONLY EIGHT DAYS LEFT TO MAKE CONTRIBUTONS FOR TREES IN 2016. Any donations received after November 30th will be used for the following year. A $40 donation buys one tree. If interested, click here to buy a tree online.

There are also several farms and garden centers in different parts of the country that will be participating in the Trees for Troops Weekend on December 2-4th. Each of these locations will have a FedEx trailer parked at their farm/lot so you can purchase a tree and then place it on the truck to be donated and delivered to a military family at one of the participating bases the following week. Click here for the full list of participating farms.

To learn more about the Christmas Spirit foundation and see how you and/or your organization can participate, please see

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Think Pink campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness. Several schools held fundraisers for Breast Cancer research and awarded their cadets a pink cord for their participation. This was the third year for Glendale’s “Think Pink” campaign. We made a donation of $650 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation in recognition of our Think Pink Campaign.

This year we increased our inventory to meet your demand. The demand continues to be tremendous so don't be disappointed next year. We keep a list of interested organizations and we will contact you in the spring before school breaks for the summer to see if you want to order for delivery in September. Give us a call or email if you want to add your school or organization to our list!

Giving Thanks

At this time of year when we reflect on all that we are grateful for we want to thank the men and women around the world serving our country who enjoy a very different kind of Thanksgiving so that we at home may enjoy the traditional Thanksgiving of family, turkey and football games. We also extend our sincerest thanks to all our loyal Glendale customers for your continued support!
