Postal Connections Rallies Communities to “Share Your Story” for Veterans Day

Brand Launches Book Donation Drive for Military Men and Women

October 13, 2016 // Franchising.com // FRISCO, Texas – In honor of Veterans Day, Postal Connections is rallying communities across the country to “Share Your Story” in a month-long, nation-wide book donation drive.

From Tuesday, October 11 through Friday, November 11, Postal Connections is partnering with Operation Paperback to gather gently used paperback books to donate to active troops and veterans in need. Postal Connections stores across the country will be accepting donations from local residents, businesses and community members to send to troops serving overseas and on U.S. soil. Books must be gently used paperbacks that are in good condition (i.e., no books that are old, musty, yellow with bent spines or ripped covers). Suggested book genres include action, bestsellers, biographies and memoirs, fantasy, history, horror, mysteries, science fiction, true crime and children’s books for military families. Educational and homeschool materials are also welcome.

“The men and women who have served and continue to serve our country are making one of the greatest sacrifices there is,” said Fred Morache, COO of Postal Connections. “We are proud to be teaming up with Operation Paperback to provide veterans and active duty troops with books donated by the people back home who truly appreciate the work they do to protect us all.”

In addition to overseas locations, Operation Paperback provides books to wounded warrior programs and veterans hospitals located across the U.S., as well as USO centers at U.S. airport transit points. The organization has more than 19,000 volunteers from all 50 states, forming a network of shippers that send upwards of 15,000 books every month to troops.
