We’re so excited! For the past year, we have been sending care packages to the platoon we adopted through the AdoptaPlatoon program. This morning, we received a very special message from the Platoon Sergeant! He let us know how much the guys appreciate the items we have sent them and expressed his sincere thanks.
We all started our day with a smile knowing that we helped to bring comforts of home to these guys who make so many sacrifices for our county. And we are even more encouraged than ever to continue sending awesome care packages.
We are inviting you, our clients and readers, to participate! Below is a partial list of the types of items our platoon needs. If you are interested in donating, please contact your sales rep, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. We are happy to provide you with signs and a collection box to post in your office, and we’ll even come by to pick it up!
AdoptaPlatoon is part of our FORMost Gives Back program.
