Every year, My family and I attend our local Memorial Day Parade. We dress in red, white and blue and clap when those who are serving march by. It one way that my family and I support our troops. Thank you for our freedom and protecting our country.
At this time of year, Marie Callenders’ also has a way to help me and my family support the troops.
Getting ready to say thank you to our troops for helping to protect our country.
Marie Callender’s Comforts From Home Project partners with the United Service Organizations (USO). The USO is dedicated to bring the comforts of home to those who miss it the most. I loved learning about how the USO makes sure that our deployed troops have a place to celebrate the holidays. Programs like this help bring seasonal meals, company, entertainment and a chance to relax away from the stress of active service.
To help bring the comforts of home to the brave men and women of the U.S. military, specially-marked packages of Marie Callender’s meals and desserts encourage consumers to go online to and enter a code found on the back of the box. Marie Callender’s will make a $.50 donation to the USO Operation Celebration program for each code entered, up to $300,000.
Last year, with consumers’ overwhelming support, Marie Callender’s brought care packages to a very deserving group of servicemen and women stationed overseas through a $250,000 donation to the USO2GO program.
