PR Newswire SAN ANTONIO, Oct. 28
Gourmet gifts retailer Harry & David will help troops far from home this holiday season enjoy an extra special treat in their Soldiers' Angels care packages - Harry & David's delicious Moose Munch Bars.
The "Support Our Troops Moose Munch Bar Drive" has resulted in over 115,000 bars sent to soldiers overseas in the past and is returning just in time for the 2010 winter holidays. Harry & David stores nationwide are offering customers the opportunity to purchase two Moose Munch bars for $4 (one bar is usually $2.50) and donate one of the two bars for the Moose Munch Bar Drive along with a personal message to a soldier. Soldiers' Angels will distribute this new round of bars in its Wrapped in Holiday Spirit care packages and Harry & David is assisting with shipping.
"We're delighted to support our troops on the front lines," said Steve Heyer, Harry & David’s ceo. "The program gives our customers the opportunity to give back to soldiers who have already given so much of themselves for our country."
Soldiers' Angels is aiming to send a holiday care package to every deployed service member this Holiday Season. Care packages will include snacks, candy, hot chocolate, socks, a handmade blanket, a travel mug and a personalized note.
