Brighten the holidays for a military family

Thursday, October 31, 2019 by The Press in Local News

Christmas Decor Inc. reminds Allentown area residents there is still time to nominate a local military family to be a 2019 “Decorated Family.”

Nominations are open through midnight Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

Participating franchisees such as Christmas Decor by Pennsylvania Lawn and Landscape LLC donate products, resources, time, and expertise to create glowing tributes at the homes of military families whose loved ones will be deployed outside of the country for the holiday season.

For the 2019 holiday season, the company is seeking to attract hundreds of nominations that result in decorating at least 200 homes.

“This year, the families of the more than 165,000 active-duty men and women who are deployed outside of the United States and its territories will face celebrating the holiday season without their loved one,” said Ken Divers of Christmas Decor by Pennsylvania Lawn and Landscape LLC. “The Decorated Family program was created to literally light up the holidays for these families and to send a glowing ‘thank you’ to these service members for their dedication and sacrifice.”

To nominate a family for this distinction, friends and family of deployed, active-duty military may go to Christmas Decor’s Facebook page at facebook.com/ChristmasDecor, click on the Decorated Family Program link, and complete a form explaining why they are nominating a military family to become a “Christmas Decor Decorated Family” for the 2019 holiday season.

Christmas Decor corporate will select military families from the nominated families in each community based on the family’s location (to ensure there is a local franchise to provide the award) and the impact of their story on the judges.
