On Wednesday, December 9th Lincoln Military Housing hosted the annual "Christmas Tree Giveaway" to show appreciation to our military families this holiday season. This is the 11th year Trees For Troops has hosted this program and it is sponsored by the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation and FedEx. This is the 8th year Lincoln Military Housing has coordinated and hosted the event in San Diego. This event is made possible by FedEx who delivered the fresh Christmas Trees in the morning and the event was held in the afternoon. Lincoln Military Housing employees volunteered to assist the families with choosing their trees and securing the tree on their vehicle.

As families waited in their vehicles to enter the event area, Lincoln treated them to entertainment, snacks, and water. Once inside the venue, families enjoyed holiday music, the entertaining snowman, and all kids were able to pick out toys to take home.

Tommy Marquez, representative from Congressman Duncan Hunter's office, attended the event and presented a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition.
