STOLEN CARE PACKAGES FOR TROOPS BEING
REPLACED THANKS TO OVERWHELMING SUPPORT
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Move America Forward (MAF), the nation’s largest grassroots pro-troops organization, had over $5,000 worth of care packages or 120 care package orders stolen from their Christmas Care Package shipment. After the story went viral donations and concerned citizen have begun to step up. Today over 850 lbs of See’s Candy has been delivered by See’s for Soldiers, a group that uses See’s candy as their main source to raise support for the troops.
“I just heard about how someone stole all those care packages meant for our troops in Afghanistan and I had to help” said See’s for Soldiers Co-founder, Army National Guard Sergeant First Class David Partak ‘Like everyone else I just want to do my part and we knew by working with Move America Forward we could reach many more men and women in uniform, we are happy to do it and will do it from now on.”
“I have been moved by the outpouring of support for our organization, Move America Forward, by so many individuals and groups like See’s for Soldiers.” says Debbie Lee, spokesperson for MAF. Debbie’s son Marc was the first Navy SEAL to be killed in Iraq, who lost his life in 2006 in Ramadi. “Working together with groups like See’s for Soldiers, we will be able to do that much more to support our troops on the front lines,” concluded Lee.
