Reno Lawn & Landscape Celebrates Christmas Décor's Ninth Year of Spreading Christmas Cheer
This holiday season, Christmas Décor by Reno Lawn & Landscape will be bringing a little extra holiday spirit into the homes of northern Nevada’s military families for the ninth annual Decorated Family Program.
With more than 100,000 American men and women deployed overseas this holiday season, families across the nation are facing the challenge of preparing for the holidays without their loved one. For all that those deployed do for our country; Christmas Décor by Reno Lawn & Landscape is giving a little back to the families of these brave men and women.
It's easy to nominate a family right on Facebook. Just follow this link to the Decorated Family page: www.facebook.com/ChristmasDecor
Christmas Décor by Reno Lawn & Landscape, northern Nevada’s leading professional holiday and event decorating franchise, began the Decorated Family Program in 2005 after a franchisee attended a holiday dinner party and began to consider all of the men and women overseas who will not be able to celebrate with those they love. The program, now in its ninth season, was created to thank our country's soldiers for their dedication and support by decorating their family's homes.
Each holiday, hundreds of Christmas Décor franchisees nationwide participate in this event by donating their products, resources and time to decorate the homes of local military families as part of the Decorated Family Program.
"It is so rewarding to see how much happiness our decorations bring to these families. For all of the sacrifices their loved ones make for us to have a happy and safe holiday, they are so deserving of some extra holiday cheer," said Steven Fine, the company’s marketing manager.
People can nominate deserving military families in their community by filling out the nomination form available on the Christmas Décor fan page on Facebook (http://facebook.com/christmasdecor). When the form is completed and submitted, it is automatically sent to Christmas Décor Corporate via firstname.lastname@example.org. This form allows people to explain why the family should become a "Christmas Décor Decorated Family." Winners are awarded based on their location (to ensure there is a local franchise to provide the award) and the impact of their story on the judges.
People can also post their Decorated Family stories on the Christmas Décor fan page on Facebook to enter a contest to receive a special prize. The lucky winning family will be the one with the most "like" votes on the Facebook page.
"My husband and I just wanted to say thank you again for your kindness and generosity. He was certainly surprised when we pulled onto our street and saw the house all decorated and lit up for his return from Afghanistan. This year marked our first Christmas as a married couple and our first Christmas in our house. We will certainly never forget Christmas 2009 and your wonderful gift to us! Thank you again!" M. and H. Eisemann, Reno, NV
"It was probably one of the best Christmas present I've ever had. It's pretty much like a dream come true," said Kim Chapman of Phenix City, Ga., wife of deployed Spec. C.J. Chapman, a mechanic for the U.S. Army. Serg. Chapman, was able to see his home decorated briefly upon his arrival home after a tour overseas before having to return to Fort Worth, Ga. for reintegration classes.
