Trees for Heroes
USO-Metro is excited to offer Trees for Heores, a very special holiday event for ACITVE DUTY, E1 through E6 military families stationed in the DMV. Selected military will experience one of the timeless traditions of the holiday season at a local Christmas Tree Farm.
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. The deadline to register is November 1, 2020 at 12:00pm ET. Winners will be notified by the first week in November.
In appreciation of our sponsors, families can spend the day selecting that perfect Christmas Tree for their home, creating season arts and crafts, pictures with Santa, and enjoying holiday fellowship.
Trees cannot be delivered to your home; you must attend the event.
The 2020 Trees for Heroes will take place on December 5, 2020 from 10:00am to 2:00pm. The event will be held a tree farm in Virginia, located approximately on hour south of Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, and one and a half hours south of Fort Meade. The exact location will be sent to those selected in the lottery. Families selected will be notified by the first week of November.
