Operation Sauce Drop is Open Again!

Operation Sauce Drop is once again accepting requests for free gift boxes of sauce for our brave military personnel serving at APO and FPO addresses! Thanks to the contributions of over 150 donors (including two very generous "angels" in California and NC) and the Carolina Sauce Company, Operation Sauce Drop has sent free BBQ sauce and hot sauce gift boxes to 830 US troops serving abroad. We have now caught up with all the requests on our waiting list and have re-opened our Military Sign-Up page where troops with an APO or FPO address can sign up to receive a free sauce gift box of their choice. Gift boxes are shipped at NO COST to them, and requests are fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis provided there are funds in the Operation Sauce Drop account.

Operation Sauce Drop is funded through donations as well as through the sale of products in the Shop to Support Operation Sauce Drop program. Additionally, the Carolina Sauce Company donates all of the labor and shipping materials, and pays for all the incidental costs associated with Operation Sauce Drop, thereby ensuring that 100% of all donated funds and "Shop to Support" funds are used ONLY to pay for the gift boxes and shipping. The average cost to purchase and ship a free gift box to a deployed serviceperson is about $20. The troops greatly appreciate receiving a free taste of home to spice up their meals, as you can see from their thank you notes to donors and photos. This holiday season, please donate to Operation Sauce Drop to send free gift boxes of hot sauce & BBQ sauce to our troops. And if you enjoy barbecue sauce and other zesty products, please treat yourself while supporting our troops by shopping to support Operation Sauce Drop.

Finally, if you're a member of our Armed Forces at an APO or FPO address, we invite you to sign up for a free gift box of sauce, and we thank you for serving our country!

Zestfully yours,
