Socks, magazines, beef jerky and gum; sound like a strange combination? These are only some of the items assembled in the eight “operations packages” that Gates McVey collected to send to Task Force Manchu, a special operations troop in Iraq.
“We’re all so fortunate and felt we should give something to all those men and women fighting in Iraq,” said Linda Hand. “It’s the very least we could do and hopefully it will be a nice surprise for the holidays.”
After Hand clipped the article from the Naples Daily News and announced the volunteer efforts to the company, she received full support from president and CEO Todd Gates.
“It’s a wonderful volunteer effort and Gates McVey is proud to be a part of it,” said Todd Gates.
