Summus Group recently partnered with a client to build and ship care packages to U.S. Air Force men and women currently deployed overseas. Care packages consisted of hand-written letters of encouragement and a variety of snacks, candy and drinks. Supplies for care packages were collected over the course of several weeks and Summus Group created a friendly competition to help increase donations.
Summus Group then hosted an event at the office to pack all of the supplies and prepare the boxes for shipping. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the opportunity to give to our troops. When the troops received the packages, they expressed great appreciation and said, “It was like Christmas!”. Troops were called over to grab snacks by the handful and the rest will be part of a squadron picnic coming up. One soldier shared he read every note and plans to keep and bring them home with him.
This was a special event for Summus Group as we have several former and active military members, as well as associates with family in the military. Summus Group thanks all of our men and women in uniform for their service!
