DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Several military bases in Texas are partnering with "Trees for Troops."

Trees For Troops is a national organization that donates live Christmas trees to military families.

Navy Senior Chief Mark Watts says, last year, they delivered more than 17,000 trees.

The trees will arrive at Naval Air Station-Kingsville and Naval Air Station Join Reserve Base in Fort Worth next week.

They'll also be shipped to Fort Bliss, Fort Hood, Joint Base San Antonio, NAS Corpus Christi, and the Coast Guard field office in Galveston.

There are several ways you can get involved. Of course you can donate money, but you can also help while you're doing your online shopping. When you go to Smile.Amazon.com and select Christmas Spirit Foundation as your charitable organization, Amazon will donate a portion of your purchases.
