'We were all excited to send a small token of our thanks during this holiday season.'
Poway, CA (PRWEB) December 20, 2011
Core Systems, industry leader of rackmount computers and rackmount displays, assembled and shipped out Christmas care packages to deployed troops overseas on Friday. After consulting Core friends and family members in the armed forces, Core Systems employees brought in various items that are sure to become favorites of the troops. Every box that was shipped included all-American favorites such as beef jerky, card and dice games, candy and snacks, books and magazines, and plenty of gum. This is the first year Core Systems has sent care packages to the troops, President of Core Systems Chris Schaffner said, "everyone thought hard about what they'd like to receive if they were deployed overseas. We were all excited to send a small token of our thanks during this holiday season. All of us intend to make this an annual event here at Core."
Core Systems shipped the packages through the organization Operation Shoebox. Founded in 2003 as a way to support deployed servicemen overseas, Operation Shoebox's goal was to raise troop morale and to remind them that they are cared for and appreciated. Operation Shoebox consistently organizes and ships care packages to troops that are deployed overseas throughout the year.
