CHERRY HILL, N.J. -- RS celebrated the season of giving by organizing Project S.A.F.E. (Supporting Armed Forces Engagement), a drive that collects food and supplies to the Armed Forces through SupportOurTroops.org. These men and women work tirelessly to protect our country and help others around the world.
The drive was held to collect donations and create care packages. MRS placed containers across the three office locations encouraging support for the drive.
“We have many former service members who work for us and their spirit of fighting for our country is an inspiration. In this hyper-partisan world we live in now, it is difficult sometimes to find something that everyone can support and unite around, thankfully support for our troops, and the great work they do, is universal. For all they do for our country, we felt the least we could do was show them our support by gathering and collecting the items they most needed,” said Co-CEO Jeff Freedman.
MRS collected over 13 boxes worth of donations, amounting to over 2,000 different items and weighing over 600 pounds. MRS is thankful for such enthusiastic participation so that continued support for the Armed Forces is possible.
“Like always, our staff rose to the occasion and went above and beyond in donating goods and items. We were blown away by the generosity. We are proud of our staff for all of their hard work but especially for their spirit of giving. It’s nice to know that our donations will bring some joy and happiness to the men and women who serve and protect our country particularly at this time of year,” said Freedman.
