As we enter the holiday season of 2016, many of us have spent some time feeling thankful. Grateful. All of us at Gilmore’s are grateful for many things—our families and friends, our health, you our customers and our freedoms, which are diligently protected by our armed forces. We were recently met with the sad but proud news that 200 of our Vermont service members are being deployed overseas at any moment. In light of this news, all of us at Gilmore Home Center are excited to announce the launching of Operation Sweet Tooth III.
You may remember a few years ago, we partnered with you and other members of our community to provide real Vermont maple syrup for our local troops overseas. In fact, during Operation Sweet Tooth I & II, we were able to ship over 2,500 maple syrups! As this most recent group of soldiers are preparing to be sent off, we are preparing for another round of sending Vermont goodness halfway around the world. And we know that our community will once again make OST3 a sweet success!
For the month of December, we will be collecting monetary donations to cover the cost of not only the syrup, but also the largest expense, which is freight. We approximate that $5 will cover the procurement and shipping on one ˝ pint of syrup. Twenty dollars then would cover 4, $50 covers 10, and so on. Think about how awesome our Vermont soldiers will feel having a taste of home while away.
If you would like to make a donation in someone’s memory or honor (veteran or not), or if you have someone in your life who is difficult to buy for, please think about giving a donation in their name. If you furnish us with their name and address, a certificate of thanks will be mailed to them letting them know a donation has been made on their behalf.
You can sponsor one of three ways:
Check - Please make checks payable to Gilmore Home Center, with "Operation Sweet Tooth" in the memo section. Cash - drop off your donation to Mark or Liza. Charge on your account - just let us know below the amount that you would like applied.
