Yenser's Tree Farm hosts Trees for Troops event

LEHIGHTON, Pa. -

Friday's wet weather couldn't dampen the spirit of giving in Carbon County.

Yenser's Tree Farm in Lehighton is holding its annual Trees for Troops event.

The program sends Christmas trees to military families.

For 25-dollars,a tree will be cut down from Yenser's, and sent on a Fed-Ex truck to Fort Polk in Louisiana or Fort Stewart in Georgia.

Co-owner Drew Yenser said it's great to see families, as well as schools and businesses, helping with the cause.

"We can't do it alone," Yenser said, "Yenser Tree Farm can't do it alone. We need the community support and we have it. They've been doing a great job."

Yenser said the farm hopes to deliver more than 450 trees to the troops.
