Earlier this summer, SSI staff collected enough goodies to mail 15 care packages to soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Employees from our various offices chipped in to buy things like razors, toothbrushes, DVDs, Power Aid powder and Teddy Grahams. All of these items were then taken to our Douglasville service center where we held a “packing pizza party.” Douglasville staff packed 15 care packages and still had supplies left over!

Here are some photos from our packing party we posted on Facebook.

When we mailed the care packages out, we included a picture of our staff from the packing party, along with a letter thanking them for their service.  We also asked them to email or post on our Facebook page to let us know they got their care package.

 

Here’s some of the response we got:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you can tell, they were thrilled to get some reminders of life back home.  These guys and gals are working tirelessly to defend our freedom, so it’s the least we can do to say thanks.

God bless our soldiers!
