‘Tis the Season! And this is a national call for Christmas Care Packages for the troops!
Let’s show them how much we each care!
Support Our Troops® makes this call on behalf of all 60+ troop-related groups across America who are routinely sending care packages to the troops.
July 18, 2008 - 27 TONS of good-will treats to California Guard members and their families!
SupportOurTroops.Org, CFC#31529, is right now delivering shipping 27 TONS popcorn good-will gifts to California national guard units and families. That’s 60 pallets. $224,538 worth! And it’s all marked with colorful “thank-you” signage. And that’s on top of hundreds of tons shipped by SupportOurTroops.Org to deployed California Troops all around the world.
“Who are these ‘troops?’ ” said Martin Boire, Chairman of SupportOurTroops.Org. “Why, they are our neighbors, who are deployed to protect us. What a fun way to show them how much we think of them, right now tractor-trailers are up and down the roadways the length of the state delivering pallets of free microwave popcorn treats for kids camps and events. Each case of popcorn comes labeled with colorful ‘thank-you’ signage. What a tremendous gesture of good will. A warm positive way to show them how much we care.”
These days a lot of the troops who are deployed to protect us and our families are our neighbors -- members of the guard. And our deployed neighbors have spouses and kids here at home. This is a simple fun way to show them we care. Especially their kids. We want them to know that we care about them and know that they are there. These free microwave popcorn treats will be used at summer camps for their kids, retreats which give returning troops and their families some decompression time together, and at family assistance centers which help with various needs.
California Support Our Troops® member Nancy Cunningham said “We want them surrounded with expressions of good will from us. This microwave popcorn is a simple fun wholesome expression of our awareness of, belief in, and gratitude for their spouses and parents. It is a simple easy way for people to get involved”
SupportOurTroops.Org, CFC#31529, offers simple ways for folks to thank and show support to American troops (our neighbors) serving to keep our families safe. It is a non-partisan, non-political civilian organization, welcoming civilians, active-duty families, and veterans as members. Neighbor to neighbor. Donations at SupportOurTroops.Org help us do wonderful things like this for the troops and their families.
Who did this?
SupportOurTroops.org, and its cooperating partners the Boy Scouts of America, and the Trails End Popcorn Company teamed up to pull this off. Said Support Our Troops® Chairman Martin C. Boire: “kids, you want to know how to pull off something this huge? Get into Scouting, you’ll get to organize hundreds of things.” Where do you think I learned how to do this?
Who manufactured it?
Nothing but the best for our troops! Trail’s End popcorn is known as America’s Best Popcorn. It is produced by Weaver Popcorn Company, one of the largest producers and manufacturers of popcorn products in the world. An 80-year-old, family-owned company located in Indiana, Weaver Popcorn distributes its products in more than 90 countries.
Where did all this popcorn come from?
From the American People! The Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts went door to door across America and asked people if they would like to donate $25 of popcorn treats to the troops. And at $25 a pop this many people did.
