Canastota Tree Farm Giving Back to The Troops in 2020
There's nothing better than spreading the Christmas spirit all over the globe during the holidays. One tree farm in Canastota consistently remembers to include those who may feel alone during this special time of year by sending trees to military members who are stationed away from home during Christmas.
Their goal is to be able to provide 450 trees to bring smiles to those serving our country this holiday season.
