We Proudly Support Operation Turbo

"Boxes of Home"


With a name like ‘America’s Favorite Gourmet Popcorn’, it’s only natural that we are proud of where we live and that we value giving back to our communities and even our nation. So much so that we want to support an organization that is also aligned with those values. In our search for such a non-profit, we discovered Operation Turbo. Their message is simply:

Sending "Boxes of Home" to deployed military service members with a focus on those that might not otherwise receive personal mail.

 

Operation Turbo


Operation Turbo is based out of Arlington, VA, and has been providing these “Boxes of Home” to our Military since 2010. Their story is amazing, and we encourage you to learn about their beginnings by visiting their website www.operationturbo.org . We are proud to support them and their cause, as we are deeply grateful for those who sacrifice to protect our home. Whether it’s a family member, friend, or a co-worker, we all know someone who has bravely served our country. It’s only right that as Americans we support those who are fighting for our freedom.

In 2018, Operation Turbo sent out over 1,300 boxes to our deployed U.S. Military and is pacing to far surpass that number in 2019. Military members can make requests right on their website, and Operation Turbo does everything they can to provide basics, but also works hard to include nice treats and reminders of home. From now on, this will include some gourmet popcorn! Donations to Operation Turbo are fully tax deductible. There are no salaried employees, it is all volunteers, so the majority of contributions go directly to the contents and the mailing of these packages to our deployed troops.

 

Supporting Service Members


We will do everything we can in support of their efforts, and have offered space, product, and look forward to doing fundraisers with them in the future. Though our efforts are just beginning this year, we look forward to being a part of their mission and helping in the ways we can. We, too, are based in Northern Virginia and know how many current and former Military personal are housed here. Some of our staff members are Veterans, and/or have family members who have served or are currently serving. We are proud in the support of all our Military family members, both past and present.

American’s Favorite Gourmet Popcorn is becoming an American tradition, and we want our tradition routed in supporting our country and our Military troops and being involved in our community. We appreciate Operation Turbo’s efforts and encourage you to support them as well.
