On March 15, AaSP volunteers packed 300 boxes for our Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen and Coasties. Thanks to our Benefactors and Supporters, it was probably the best carton to date. Every box contained a “plethora” of goodies – including Peeps, Mike and Ike‘s and Hot Tamales; Unilever’s Suave, AXE and Dove products; fruit cups, 4Imprint coffee tumblers and flashlights; Mountain America Jerky of two types; Peppers.com table sauce; tuna packs; Oreo‘s; Slim Jim‘s; and coffee and KCups from Coffee Associates. Volunteers from Unilever Veterans Business Resource Group, Menasha Corp., and TD Bank joined with AaSP volunteers on Wednesday to make boxes and set up the assembly line and Thursday to make the boxes. Additionally, American Legion Posts from Cresskill, NJ, and Pearl River, NY, participated. It was a great pack and will take a little time to completely get into the USPostal Service system. We’re hoping all boxes are in the system by Easter.
The assembly is choreographed ahead of time.
