There are thousands of soldiers overseas who are missing holidays with their families to serve our country. The least we can do is show our support by sending them a shoebox full of goodies.
Columbus, OH (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
American Signature Furniture announced today that they are supporting Blue Star Mothers of America by asking the community to drop off donations at any of their stores to be sent to U.S. troops serving overseas. The campaign begins today and runs through November 13th.
American Signature Furniture was inspired to become more deeply involved with the organization by a home office employee who founded and currently serves as her local chapter’s president. During the campaign, American Signature Furniture is asking that volunteers use a shoebox to hold the items they wish to donate. Packed goods can range from household conveniences such as batteries, soap or a toothbrush, to playful commodities such as mini-footballs, candy and magazines. The “goodies” are meant to provide comfort to troops serving thousands of miles away during the holidays.
"We are passionate about giving back to our community”, said Scott Binger, Vice President of Creative Services. “For years, our associates have dedicated their time and money to different charities, and we are very excited to ask our fans and customers to join us and help raise donations for our Blue Star Mothers philanthropic event. There are thousands of soldiers overseas who are missing holidays with their families to serve our country. The least we can do is show our support by sending them a shoebox full of goodies."
Once a shoebox has been completed, it can be dropped off at any American Signature Furniture store. Cash donations will also be accepted, with 100% of the proceeds given to Blue Star Mothers of America. Additional information about the promotion can be found at the American Signature Furniture Facebook page. The community is also encouraged to follow @AmSigFurniture on Twitter and use the hashtag #shoebox4troops for updates regarding the promotion.
