(Tallahassee & Ocala, FL) Tri-Eagle Sales, the local Anheuser-Busch wholesaler, is honored to announce a contribution to over $7,000 to military and veteran organizations in support of Veterans Day. A portion of Budweiser sales from the month of October were donated to the non-profit organization, Operation Shoebox. Operation Shoebox focuses on providing hands-on support for our troops deployed overseas and returning home.
Tri-Eagle Sales has supported Operation Shoebox over the years with donated items and volunteerism by stuffing care packages for military personnel. Each year, thousands of care packages filled with supplies are put together and sent to our troops overseas through the efforts pioneered by Operation Shoebox.
“Thanks to our supportive community, we are able to donate a portion of Budweiser sales to Operation Shoebox. Operation Shoebox is an outstanding organization that started locally and has expanded its mission across the country. Supporting Operation Shoebox is one small way we can show our gratitude to those who have made sacrifices for our nation and thank them for protecting our freedom,” said Brittany Foster, Director of Marketing for Tri-Eagle Sales.
In addition to Operation Shoebox, Tri-Eagle Sales donated $5,000 to the Folds of Honor Foundation. Tri-Eagle Sales has partnered with the Folds of Honor Foundation, a 501(c) (3) charitable organization based in Owasso, OK. This organization is dedicated to providing educational scholarships and other assistance to the children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled while serving our great nation.
This Veterans Day, we remember and pay tribute to the brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who served in previous wars, who are serving today, and who have made the ultimate sacrifice before having the chance to become honored veterans. This Bud’s for you!
