Wagman Collects Items for Troops
(York, PA ) Wagman offices in Pennsylvania and Virginia collected extra Halloween candy and other frequently requested items to be included in holiday care packages sent to troops. Wagman’s York, PA offices and Berryville, VA office collected items for Support Our American Recruits (S.O.A.R.), while Wagman’s Dinwiddie, VA office collected items for Operation Gratitude.
The drive was announced before Halloween and wrapped up on Veterans Day, Wednesday, November 11th. Employees were encouraged to wear red, white and blue on the final day of the drive, showing their support to Veterans and active military personnel.
Lisa Wagman Glezer, Vice President of Communications at Wagman, Inc. states, “Community is a Core Value and Wagman continues to seek opportunities to engage our employees in outreach efforts. For those of us with trick-or-treating aged children, it offers a lesson about making a small sacrifice of donating candy for those who are making a much larger sacrifice.” She continues, “While corporately, we had financially supported S.O.A.R in the previous years, this is the second year that we have sponsored a drive in Pennsylvania, and the first time in Virginia. We were thrilled with the reception and response from employees and their families! In addition, we were able to designate some of the donations for care packages to be sent to relatives of employees, which made the collection even more meaningful.”
Wagman presented a check upon delivery to S.O.A.R. to help pay for the shipping of the holiday care packages that are sent to service men and women.
