Online PR News – 18-September-2012 – Lubbock, TX – In honor of Patriot Day this year, Christmas Decor will be launching a program to help boost the spirit of military families across the country. With the American men and women still deployed throughout the world this holiday season, military families are facing the challenge of preparing for the holidays without their loved ones. For all that those deployed do for our country; Christmas Decor is giving a little back to the families of these brave men and women with its tenth annual Decorated Family Program.
Christmas Decor, the nation’s leading professional holiday & event decorating franchise, began the Decorated Family Program in 2003 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 was created to thank our country’s soldiers for their dedication and support by decorating their family’s homes.
Each holiday, hundreds of Christmas Decor 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.
“Christmas Decor always looks forward to giving back to the families with loved ones overseas,” said Brandon Stephens, President of Christmas Decor. “We are proud to have found an extra special way to thank our country’s soldiers for their dedication and support by decorating their families’ homes.”
People can nominate deserving military families in their community by filling out the nomination form available on the Christmas Decor fan page on Facebook. When the form is completed it should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. This form allows people to explain why the family should become a “Christmas Decor 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 Decor 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.
With nearly 300 locations, Christmas Decor, Inc. is now the largest professional holiday & event decorating franchise. The company offers a complete decorating service program including display design, installation, maintenance, and removal of holiday lighting and decorations. Now the franchise is in the enviable position of being able to give back to communities.
“Each and every American who has volunteered to serve overseas is a true hero,” said Stephens. “We felt as if this was the least we could do to show support for our troops still stationed around the world.”
The company is seeking to attract hundreds of nominations that result in decorating at least 200 homes for the 2012 holiday season. The deadline for nominations is Veterans Day, November 11, 2012.
