Mercedes in the Morning and Mix 94.1 are teaming up with The Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation for the fourth annual “Munchies for the Military” on Wednesday, September 7th from 5:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
In honor of September 11th and to support the troops abroad, Mercedes in the Morning are asking the community to stop by one of the Sam’s Club locations on September 7th to donate non-perishable “munchies” to send to service members who are currently stationed overseas. Along with collecting “munchies,” Mercedes in the Morning will also be soliciting for cash donations to help cover the costs of shipping the care packages to the troops.
The goal this year is to send 2,000 care packages to our troops so we need to collect 20,000 munchies and $20,000. Sam’s Club is helping us hit our goal by handing out FREE one day passes to anyone who is not already a member.
