Here’s an excerpt from an email we recently received from the Middle East.
“I cannot begin to thank you for the support you provide us while we are overseas. You should see the faces of my sailors light up when they get items in the mail that they cannot get here. People like you who selflessly send item(s) to deployed service members are amazing. It makes us remember who we are out here for and most of all it lets us know that our service and sacrifice is appreciated. – NJR, US Navy Expeditionary Security Forces
Now you can see how important your support of the Soldier Box Project is and why we are stepping it up for 2017. Thanks to your enthusiasm and our company’s commitment, we shipped 72 holiday care packages to troops in the Middle East in December. And, the sky’s the limit for 2017!
Along with sending the twice-yearly soldier boxes to our troops, we continue to support Mountain Resource Center children’s holiday party, Mountain Area Land Trust and Western Resource Advocates’ efforts on behalf of the environment, Evergreen Animal Protective League’s goal of finding forever homes for pets, and hundreds of non-profits requesting gifts for their silent auctions. We raised and donated more than $20,000 and volunteered almost 3,000 hours.
Last year for the first time, we fielded a team in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. It was such a moving and joyous experience that we’re pledged to participate again this year with even more gusto. And, we invite you to join us!
Thanks to our guests and staff and the community for supporting our efforts to help make the world a better place. We couldn’t do it without you.
