BIRMINGHAM, Ala., May 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of National Military Appreciation Month, Always Best Care of Birmingham, one of the leading senior care franchise systems in the United States, has joined forces with Operation Support Our Troops America (OSOTA), to host an online care package drive in support of American soldiers overseas. Now through Memorial Day, May 28, local residents can give back to members of the military serving abroad by visiting www.yougivegoods.com/abc-supports-the-military and selecting from a variety of goods to purchase for donation.
"We are thrilled to partner with an organization like Operation Support Our Troops America and encourage families to take part in the online care package drive and help a great cause," said Jennifer Mancuso, Always Best Care of Birmingham franchisee. "Every donation, big or small, helps support the well-being of American soldiers who put their lives at risk to protect us and our great country."
All contributions made to Always Best Care's online care package drive will be sent to U.S. troops overseas at the end of the month. The drive is made possible through YouGiveGoods, an innovative company that connects tangible giving to community needs through a free, easy-to-use online service.
"We are so appreciative of Always Best Care doing a collection drive for us through YouGiveGoods," said Jamie Nelson, Executive Director of Operation Support Our Troops America.
