November 1 - 10, 2017 at TD Bank
For military members serving overseas, it’s good to get a little taste of home. Founded in 2005, Operation Shoebox New Jersey is a volunteer grassroots organization dedicated to shipping care packages to U.S. troops based in the Middle East. To date the organization has shipped more than 73,000 total packages to U.S. military personnel. But, to continue helping our troops abroad, they need the support of their community at home.
That’s why on Wednesday, November 1st through Friday, November 10th we came together with the community at select New Jersey Store locations to collect donations for Operation Shoebox. Thanks to local support and a grant from the TD Charitable Foundation, together we presented a check for $10,718.40 to Rod Hirsch, Operation Shoebox Executive Director. Our total funds collected will cover the shipping costs for more than 400 packages to be sent to troops overseas.
