Buchanan & Edwards Leads Donation Drive for the US Troops in Afghanistan
October 2011- Washington, DC
Buchanan & Edwards (BE) recently completed a donation drive for the troops in Afghanistan. Through the overwhelming support of its principles and staff, Buchanan & Edwards was able to collect and ship food, clothing, books, toiletries, and much more to its sponsored platoon in Sangin, Afghanistan. The supplies were shipped to the troops through Give2TheTroops, an organization dedicated to lifting the morale of troops overseas through care packages and items from home.
Give2TheTroops was started by a single military wife in 2002, from her own basement. The operation quickly grew from sending 100 packages a month to the thousands currently sent. Now operating from several branch locations throughout the country, Give2TheTroops sends over 80 packages a week from each branch. The North Carolina branch, despite facing great damage due to Hurricane Irene, continues to pack and ship boxes daily. Undeterred by the lost homes and damage, many volunteers at this branch continue to serve the troops. Buchanan & Edwards was proud to be able to work with this organization of dedicated individuals who selflessly work to make every deployed troop feel remembered and loved.
