Christmas Decor, a professional holiday and event decorating company, is now accepting nominations for their 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 of the country for the holiday season.

Under the program, participating Christmas Decor franchisees, including Christmas Decor by Bonin’s Lawn Service in Lafayette, 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.

“More than 170,000 active-duty men and women will be deployed outside the United States and its territories this holiday season,” said Kevin Bonin of Christmas Decor by Bonin’s Lawn Service. “For the families of these brave men and women, preparing for a holiday season without their loved one at home can be a challenge. It’s a privilege to be part of this program that helps to literally light up the holidays for these families. It’s our way of thanking them and their service member for their dedication and service.”

Lafayette residents can nominate a family by clicking on the Decorated Family Program link on  Christmas Decor’s Facebook page and completing 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 2018 holiday season. Christmas Decor corporate will select military families from the nominated families 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 hundred of nominations with the result of decorating at least 200 homes for the holiday season. The deadline for nominations is Veterans Day, November 11, 2018.
