By: Team SFMC, Jillian Noelle Ellis — Team SFMC shipped care packages for our troops! They worked with the Bull Run Rotary to collect non perishable food, notes of appreciation and other requested items. The drive was called “Sending the Spirit of Home.”
“Sending the Spirit of Home” collection locations included SFMC Inc. headquarters and Bull Run Foot and Ankle Clinic in Manassas, VA.
The care packages were sent to a United States Air Force base in the Middle East. Packages included games, snacks, and even fake mustaches! (These were a hit!)
The troops were thrilled with the packages! They replied with a special thanks to Team SFMC’s Wendy Bush for a including a Hickory Farm Summer Sausage package. The men and woman ate the treat in less than a minute.
Supplies continue to arrive after weeks of waiting. Mail can take up to a month to arrive!
George Ellis, CEO and his wife Theresa have a special interest in this troop. The oldest and only son in their family is deployed to this base.
