With Veteran’s Day quickly approaching we are once again reminded of our military service members, both past and present, who make such a sacrifice to serve our country.
Often times we struggle with how we can help those that are currently serving our nation. There is one simple way in which everyone can participate. Our family loves knowing that we can help our family friends who currently serve mercilessly for our country.
The USO (United Service Organization), which provides morale, welfare and recreation-type services to United States troops and their families, has a program called USO2GO. This program brings kits filled with electronics, sports gear, books, games and more to troops stationed in remote locations around the world. Each kit contains the comforts of home, such as games, athletic equipment, books and furnishings. USO2GO kits help to transform a remote base into a place where troops can organize a pick-up football game, relax in beanbag chairs and swap stories, or send e-mails to loved ones back home.
Marie Callender’s has a program called Comforts From Home Project that makes it easy to support the brave men and women of the U.S. military. When we purchase Marie Callender’s dinners or desserts we can all support the USO2GO program!
I love this because I have to feed my family, and there is no easier way than grabbing a delicious Marie Callender’s frozen meals in the frozen section of the grocery store.
This week I picked up the Marie Callender’s Vermont White Cheddar Mac & Cheese. It is absolutely fabulous!
It was the perfect side with our dinner and we all, especially the kids, loved it! It’s so easy to pop in the oven (or you can even cook it in the microwave). The Marie Callender’s frozen meals help take the stress out of cooking!
