October 29, 2015 // Franchising.com // CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Sky Zone Charlotte is giving back to our troops overseas through Operation Gratitude, an organization dedicated to lifting the spirits and meeting the evolving needs of our Military and First Responder communities and their families.
From November 2 to November 6, guests can show their thanks by donating two pounds or more of candy to Sky Zone Charlotte in support of our troops this Halloween season. Guests who donate will receive a free 30-minute jump pass for high-flying fun atop an inter-connected court of trampolines while supporting a worthy cause. All candy donations will go to Operation Gratitude and will be placed in individually addressed care packages for soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines who are deployed overseas. Each year, Operation Gratitude sends over 150,000 care packages containing food, hygiene products, entertainment, and handmade items, as well as personal letters of support to show appreciation to the brave men and women who serve our nation.
“With Veteran’s Day just around the corner from Halloween, we wanted to extend the celebration to our military personnel abroad who were unable to partake in the festive holiday,” said Brian Spick, owner of Sky Zone Charlotte. “Operation Gratitude specializes in bringing the comforts of home to troops overseas and Sky Zone Charlotte is proud to aid in this delivery to bring happiness to our troops as well as our guests here at home in Charlotte.”
Sky Zone Charlotte is located at 10200 Centrum Parkway, Pineville, NC 28134. For more information on Sky Zone Charlotte, please visit www.skyzone.com/Charlotte.
