It’s a little taste of home for our troops – a good cigar at the end of a day, together with a chance to unwind while working hard so far away from family and friends.
Easton, PA (PRWEB) December 09, 2013
Famous Smoke Shop, the nation’s #1 discount retailer of premium handmade cigars, has aligned with Operation: Cigars for Warriors to support their mission of collecting and distributing premium cigars to our brave men & women serving in combat zones around the globe. Famous Smoke Shop is Operation: Cigars for Warriors’ largest corporate sponsor, with a commitment to provide nearly $50,000 in contributions that go directly to our US military personnel.
To enhance their efforts this holiday season, Famous Smoke Shop and Leaf Cigar Bar will be matching one cigar for every cigar purchased and/or donated from Friday December 13th to Saturday December 14th at their retail location in Forks Township. It is Famous Smoke Shop's way to honor, show respect and thank those putting it all on the line for us back home. The company receives requests from many soldiers who have no one here in the U.S. to send care packages to them, and would otherwise receive nothing.
“It’s a little taste of home for our troops – a good cigar at the end of a day, together with a chance to unwind while working hard so far away from family and friends," says CFW founder and president, Storm Boen. "This is Operation: Cigars for Warriors, and it’s an amazing network of volunteers working to help make that relaxing moment happen for our troops. Soaring requests for premium smokes prove that the giving of such a small item, a single cigar, makes a huge impact on their well-being. And that’s the primary mission of Op: CFW, to send premium cigars and cigar-related items to our troops in war zones.”
CFW representatives, Rick and Robert Nease, will be on location to help promote the donation drive and to provide information to customers who are interested in learning more about the organization. Famous Smoke Shop will be running a variety of promotions including discounts on military collector cigar tins and other American themed tobacco products, prizes and giveaways, as well as an additional 10% discount for all military personnel past and present.
Famous Smoke Shop released the following statement to their customers in regards to this event: "Please join us in supporting our endeavor to send love, honor, and respect—one cigar at a time to those whose sacrifices never end. We are in need of cigars, cutters, lighters, water pillows, travel humidors etc… We are working continuously to fill the requests & we would like to thank everyone for the support & donations."
