YouGX has chosen to partner directly with Operation Shoe Box, a nonprofit organization based in Central Florida whose mission includes "boosting morale with practical tokens of kindness in the form of snacks, personal care items, entertainment and thank-you notes to men and women stationed around the world." In 2012, Operation Shoe Box delivered over 114 tons of supplies to troops overseas. The Youfit team hopes to break new records this year through their joint effort.
From now through the 29th, donation boxes can be found at the front desk of all Youfit locations along with a list of needed donations – hygiene items, printed materials, music and more. In addition to the donation drive, all participating Youfit clubs will offer special classes for ALL Youfit members at all drop-off locations on Nov. 29. Contact your local club to honor our troops this November with your kind offering.
