  • Care Packages to the Troops

  • AvatarRacheal Weir
    Chief Scribe

    ScribeAmerica has a strong history of supporting those in service. Did you know that our public website features veteran scribes and veteran businesses on a quarterly basis? Did you know that our Founder, Dr. Michael Murphy, was an Army Ranger for the 1st Ranger Battalion in Savannah, Georgia? My own sister, Brandi, is a military police officer (MP) in the Army.

    Paying homage to our Founder Dr. Michael Murphy’s background in the US Military and to support all those who serve us at home and abroad, I would like to challenge you to participate in this one monthly. Each month, I would love to send a collection of ScribeAmerica created care boxes to troops who are currently deployed.

    I wanted to find a way to say thank you and that we are thinking about them. So monthly, I have a goal to collect at a minimum 5 boxes to send to troops who are deployed. That’s 60 boxes a year!

    We will supply a list of ideas to put into the box, but ultimately what goes in is up to you. I know that the troops are extremely excited when they receive a box and any boxes not specifically addressed to a particular individual are given to those whose need is the greatest.

    Let’s show our service men and women just how much we care and how thankful we are for their service. Not to mention, as ScribeAmerica scribes, I feel we have to show off our patriotism.

    Let’s be a company that really shows that we care! If anyone on your team would like to participate as well, just send me an email and I can plug them into this project!

    Rachael,

    This is a great idea. I’d love to connect more as this develops. Please feel free to reach out to me if you would like to discuss this further. I’d like to connect this to some other veteran-focused campaigns we have going.

    Hello all,

    Thank you for the support for this project. I wanted to share the handout that I am providing to my scribes. I sent out this handout today and will discuss it in-depth with the team where I am onsite during our ASM in May followed by a group get-together to put packages together at a public park (nice weather and where the community can see us and ask questions if curious).

    Update:

    We were able to make 100 small care packages to be sent as a large shipment. The postal service does discount Flat-Rate Priority boxes when sending them to an APO address. This would not have been successful without the generosity of the scribes or the the time of the organizers!

    Racheal,

    I love your video! What a great outcome – 100 packages!

    We would like to borrow your idea at our Corporate HQ level, and will be getting everyone together to gather and pack up as many care packages as we can to send out over the first 2 weeks in July.

    If you have a few spare moments in your schedule over the next week, I would love the opportunity to schedule a call with you so we can talk about the logistics of this project. I’ll also be sending you a quick email to see if we can set something up.

    Please let me know. Thanks!

    And we have our winner! Congratulations, Amber!

    (Just in case anyone is curious, the system didn’t alert anyone on the thread about the contest post. Amber was already on her way to the forum to post a note to Racheal and got lucky! It pays off to be an active forum poster!)

    Check back next Monday from 11AM-1PM EDT for our next hunt!

    Congratulations Amber!! And Racheal – This is such an amazing idea. Having military family members and close friends who have received care packages from generous strangers in the past, I know they will love these!!!
