Ottawa, Canada, June 28, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Bloomex has partnered with the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services (CFMWS) and their Operation Santa Claus program, which sends care packages to deployed Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members over the holiday season.
Bloomex will provide Canadians with the opportunity to create free personalized greeting cards to express their thanks and well wishes to the troops. The goal is to send one card for every active deployed Canadian soldier who is overseas this December, which could be as many as 3000 men and women.
Every year, thanks to partnerships from corporations in Canada and community involvement from Canadians, Operation Santa Claus delivers holiday packages to deployed CAF members worldwide. The packages contain gifts that are uniquely Canadian to remind our soldiers of home while they are away from their loved ones.
“We truly appreciate the effort and dedication of our CAF men and women,” says Sue McDonald, Director of PR and Corporate Sponsorship at Bloomex Canada. “We wanted to provide a way for Canadians to recognize the sacrifices our soldiers make, especially when they have to be so far from family and friends during the holidays.”
Receiving an Operation Santa Claus care package has proven year after year to lift the spirits of the brave men and women of the CAF, their kind words of appreciation make our efforts that much more meaningful.
“Thank you so much for the extremely thoughtful Operation Santa Claus package that we each received. Please pass our thanks to all of the partners and let them know that receiving the packages really did improve our morale and made Christmas more enjoyable for all of us!” – Lietenant-Colonel 2017
