Bonita Springs, FL (April 9, 2018) – Recently, the founder of the nonprofit Operation: Military Matters, 12-year-old Graci Tubbs presented the COO of Flightdocs, Inc. Greg Heine with a plaque thanking his company for donating $2,500 to help send care packages to the military overseas. The money donated will be able to help send 143 care packages. Flightdocs is based out of Bonita Springs, FL providing full-service maintenance tracking solution for aircraft operators.
“When I was introduced to Operation: Military Matters, I knew it was something we wanted to be a part of. The support of the US military is so important to us, and we wanted to help a cause that had a direct, positive impact on our troops, veterans, and their families. Graci has done a great job on putting together the organization and we look forward to seeing how she is able to help others in the future,” said Heine.
Operation: Military Matters is a 501 (c) (3) located in Pinellas County, Florida and was started in November 2015, as part of a project for a gifted class by Tubbs. After hearing and seeing veterans speak at a school Veterans Day assembly, Tubbs felt the need to support our military and let the men and women sacrificing their lives for us, know people back home cared about them.
Tubbs collects donations from the community to put in the care packages. The items include: handwritten cards, toiletry items, shampoo, soap, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, snacks, hard candy, wipes, games, instant coffee, gummy bears, romen noodles, beef jerky, tuna or salmon packs, tea, gallon zip lock bags, hand lotion, trail mix, socks, dvds, etc.
Since 2015, the nonprofit has sent more than 500 care packages. Each package costs $17.40 to send. To find out more about Operation: Military Matters go to www.operationmilitarymatters.com
