Hey everyone Ruopp and Ruopp are gearing up for the third annual candy buy back. Thursday November 1st at our office from 2:30p.m.-5:00p.m. We are wanting you to help us out and get the children involved please encourage your children to bring in extra halloween candy in exchange for $1 per pound of candy up to 5 pounds. make sure all candy is in its original packaging and unopened. Our Troops appreciate all the goodies that we can send to them. Dont go trick or treating? You can still help by bringing new toothbrushes. That's right -- and we want to make sure that every Operation Gratitude care package sent out to the troops this year includes a toothbrush as well as the collected candy and the usual wide variety of joyful goods that are enthusiastically packed every year by their hundreds of volunteers. Last year our efforts to additionally collect brushes to be included in the care packages from Operation Gratitude netted us 11,000 brushes! That was a great start and we want to shatter that number this year because we want to hit 100,000 brushes! Last year the office average of those that sent brushes was 57 brushes. Now if we can bump that number up to 100 and get EVERY participating office to send brushes in, we should reach our goal! So please join us in the candy buy back program and the 100,000 toothbrush challange. We also encourage children to write letters or draw pictures telling the troops thank you for serving our country.
