#GivingTuesday is a day to remember, after the Thanksgiving holiday, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday sales, to give back to your community.
The holiday season is a busy time and it’s easy to get caught up in the sales and celebrations. You’re trying to wrap up projects and plan your vacations. All too often, remembering those in need can fall off your radar.
1E has always believed in putting in the effort to help those in need.
To make the most of #GivingTuesday, this year we partnered with Operation Shoebox. Their mission is to provide support to active and veteran military officers. Operation Shoebox gives those heroes who have served America the care and honor they deserve. Whether it’s donating supplies to homeless veterans or shipping care packages to active soldiers overseas, Operation Shoebox sends between 800-1,000 shipments per week!
Take a look at some of the items we donated for the boxes.
We were proud to have donated over $3,000 worth of goods to this cause. Along with our donations, the 1E staff crafted handmade cards to include with our boxes.
