Sweets for Soldiers Update
A&AS COLLECTED A TON OF CANDY for the soldiers. 2,075 pounds of candy was collected with the Jenkintown office of A&AS collecting 926 pounds, the Blue Bell office collecting 720 pounds, plus candy from all the other offices. Thanks so much to the many school organizations who coordinated candy collections at their schools and drop offs to our office. Much of the candy is being shipped to the “Keystone Military Families” organization that ships 7500 Christmas stockings to troops overseas, “Operations Shoebox” sending over 1,000 care packages to troops overseas, the ”Travis Manion Foundation” shipping over 500 care packages in memory of serviceman Travis Manion lost in action and three organizations housing homeless veterans. Thanks to all the staff at A&AS that helped to weigh and package the candy. AND A GREAT BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THE CHILDREN WHO GAVE UP THEIR CANDY FOR SUCH A TERRIFIC CAUSE!!!
