(Harrisburg) -- A group is trying to make Christmas a little brighter for deployed military members and their families.
Trees for Troops collects donated Christmas trees, and sends them to military bases in the U-S and abroad.
"It's quite common for them to say something like 'We weren't even in the mood for Christmas', especially if someone is deployed and they're apart," says Rick Dungey, spokesman for Trees for Troops.
"That's tough this time of the year."
Strathmeyer Christmas Trees at the York Fairgrounds is the only location in the midstate that will take donations of trees this weekend.
"They'll say 'We weren't even in the mood for Christmas, and then we got a tree, and now we feel better, and now we're going to celebrate.'"
But Dungey says donations are accepted year-round at Trees for Troops.
