Military Connections Collects Life Savers for Troops
The project also can win $1,000.
Military Connections, a nonprofit organization operated by Oakmont Chamber of Commerce Director Summer Tissue, is collecting Life Savers for troops—and your vote can help the effort win $1,000 from GOOD Maker.
During World War II, Life Savers accompanied soldiers in their rations as reminders of home. Other candy makers even donated their sugar rations to allow LifeSavers to stay in production for the troops. This year, the candy turns 100.
How to Donate
Military Connections is filling sandwich-size Ziploc bags with individually
wrapped Life Savers candies and a note for troops.
The organization is asking for donations of $10 (to help cover the cost of Life Savers), assembled Life Saver packs, individually wrapped Life Savers, Ziploc bags or your time.
Monetary donations and supplies can be sent to:
Military Connections Corporation
312 Auburn St.
Pittsburgh, PA 15235
The deadline for this project is Aug. 15.
