Christmas Decor, North America’s leading professional holiday and event decorating company, is now accepting nominations for its Decorated Family Program, an annual initiative that brings the spirit of the holidays to the homes of military families whose loved ones will be deployed outside the country for the holiday season. Under the program, participating Christmas Decor franchisees, including Christmas Decor by G.M.G. Inc. of Nassau, donate their products, resources, time and expertise to create heartwarming displays to brighten the holidays for deserving service members and their families throughout the U.S.
“This year, the families of the more than 165,000 active-duty men and women who are deployed outside the United States and its territories will face celebrating the holiday season without their loved one,” said Mike Gray of Christmas Decor by G.M.G. Inc.. “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 local family, go to Christmas Decor’s Facebook page and click on the Decorated Family Program link to complete a nomination form. The form asks people to share the story of a deserving military family and explain why they believe that family should become a Christmas Decor Decorated Family for the 2019 holiday season. Christmas Decor corporate will select military families from among the nominees 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.
The company is seeking to attract hundreds of nominations that result in decorating at least 200 homes for the 2019 holiday season. The deadline for nominations is Veterans Day, Monday, Nov. 11.
