New Gift Boxes for Operation Sauce Drop
We are pleased to announce that 3 new gift boxes are now available at no cost for US Military personnel stationed abroad, as part of Operation Sauce Drop. This brings the total to 7 different gift boxes from which military personnel may choose a free gift. The three new gift boxes feature NC barbeque sauces and come packed in a hand-made, rustic wooden crate that holds two pints of sauce. The Mild BBQ Gift Box holds two pints of the award-winning Jim's Own Homestyle BBQ Sauce, while the Hot BBQ Gift Box holds two pints of the spicy Jim's Own Hot BBQ Sauce. And for folks who can't decide between mild and hot, or who like them both, we have the NC BBQ Combo Gift Box, with one pint each of Jim's Own Homestyle and Jim's Own Hot BBQ Sauces. These three new gift boxes are made possible thanks to the generosity of Jim Arnold, the maker of Jim's Own BBQ Sauces, who has donated the wooden crates being used for the gift boxes. Thank you, Jim!!
If you are in the military and stationed abroad with an APO or FPO mailing address, please don't hesitate to sign up for a free gift box of your choice (and yes, even the shipping is free, thanks to the generosity of our donors). If you have a friend or a loved one serving abroad, you can sign them up to receive a free gift box if you know their APO or FPO address. And if you want to do something to support our troops, please consider making a contribution to Operation Sauce Drop. Any amount will help, and 100% of all donations are used solely to pay for the cost of the gift boxes and the shipping. If you can't afford to make a monetary contribution, then you can still make a difference by telling everyone you know about Operation Sauce Drop via email, blogs, forum postings, word of mouth, whatever you can do. And if you have a way to spread the word in the military community to let service personnel know they can claim a free gift box, then please let them know. Many thanks for your support!
