A local business wants to light up the holidays for two deserving families.

A local business wants to light up the holidays for two deserving families.

Each year, Pennsylvania Lawn and Landscape and Christmas Decor chooses two veterans or active service members and decorates their homes.

The company is accepting online nominations now and the winners will be selected the first week of December.

The company said it's a great way to give back to the men and women who serve our country.

"If it wasn't for them, we wouldn't have the freedoms that we have today. Point blank. They don't really get a lot of the credit they deserve," said Ken Divers, Pennsylvania Lawn and Landscape.

The company will use LED lights to cut down on operating costs, and workers will also remove the decorations after Christmas so the families don't have to.
