Farmingdale, NY (2/18/2014) - Dianna and Jeff Merritts, owners of the Minuteman Press located in Salisbury, support Operation “We Care,” which is a non-profit organization that supports local Military personnel by shipping them packages of goodies to make their time overseas a little more comfortable.
“We just wanted to help out, “said Jeff. “My wife Diana and I begged, borrowed but stopped short of stealing and we came up with enough goods to ship over 101 care packages to our overseas soldiers. That was in 2007. Now we have between 250 and 300 folks volunteering to help us and we ship 680 care packages twice a year!”
Diana and Jeff send out packages around Memorial Day and Labor Day every year, each filled with items such as Chapstick, pens, crossword puzzle books, playing cards, calling cards etc. “We Care” ships packages directly to soldiers whenever possible, but they also send the packages to deployed units and ask that they be distributed amongst the soldiers.
Packing 680 boxes is no easy feat. Just prior to shipment, volunteers, members of the military as well as representatives of the businesses that support “We Care”, are invited to a packaging party where all boxes are packed, labeled and approximately 17,000 items are readied for shipment. With 660 boxes, the shipping amounts to almost $11,000. “We offset the cost of shipping through donations,” said Jeff.
Operation “We Care” is a wonderful example of what everyday people can do to show their support for those who protect us. The Minuteman Press Home Office along with Regional Vice President Bob Heimbuch are very proud of Dianna and Jeff for supporting such a great cause! If you have or are willing to purchase items in need, drop them off at Minuteman Press Salisbury, 1008 South Salisbury Blvd or call them at 800-713-8940.
