SAUL GOOD RESTAURANT & PUB JOINS FORCES WITH MILITARY MISSIONS FOR A JULY 4TH FUNDRAISER TO HELP SHIP CARE PACKAGES TO DEPLOYED SOLDIERS
On July 4th, all Saul Good Restaurant & Pub locations in Lexington Ky will offer 1/2 price on all food as an incentive to generate donations for Military Missions, Inc.
Military Missions, Inc. is dedicated to providing care packages and support for soldiers deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan, and other locations. These care packages contain essential items such as eye drops, foot powder, and socks. They also include other items like snack food, puzzle books, and drink mixes.
Last year, we shipped about 7,000 packages to deployed soldiers. Our military men and women sacrifice so much for us, we should dig deep into our hearts and pockets to show our appreciation for them.
“We are thrilled to be a part of Military Missions quest to encourage and thank our hometown heroes,” said Rob Perez, owner of Saul Good Restaurant & Pub.
Saul Good Restaurant & Pub is an American pub, which serves a wide variety of chef driven food, including hand tossed pizzas, gourmet burgers, farm fresh salads and features a chocolate bar. The restaurant will offer 1/2 price on all food items on July 4th, from noon to 7:00 pm. Donations to Military Missions will be encouraged.
Saul Good Restaurant & Pub now has 3 locations to serve the Lexington area:
Plaza at Fayette Mall, 3801 Mall Rd (859) 273-4663
Hamburg, 1808 Alysheba Way (859) 317-9200
and Downtown, 123 N. Broadway (859) 252-4663.
They can also be found on the web at www.saulgoodpub.com.
If you cannot visit a Saul Good location but would still like to help support our troops, please visit our donation page.
Our NEW address is 3650 Boston Rd, Suite 138, Lexington KY 40514. Same spot. Different office.
Just 7 days ago we received a call from the landlord telling us we had 15 days to find another home. After the initial “oh no what are we going to do” shock wore off, we rolled up our sleeves and went to work. Things quickly fell into place and we were able to secure another space just 2 doors down. The best part of this move is that the new space is TWICE the size of our old office!
Just as the previous office, this one is not a permanent home. In order to negotiate an affordable rent, we agreed to a month-to-month lease and must move out when a full-pay tenant is found. This could be a couple months or a couple years. Hopefully we will be able to stay in this new space for awhile, but we’ll need to continue to look for our “forever home” in the meantime. (Let us know if you have a lead.)
It will take another week or so to get things into place in the new space, but we’d love for you to stop by and see us sometime. We have volunteers working between 10am and 3pm every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. If you are bringing or shipping donations to us, please be sure to include your email address so we can save money by emailing you a thank you receipt letter.
As always, we are extremely grateful for your support of our troops through Military Missions, Inc.
OPERATION S.E.N.D EASTER is one of the many projects that Military Missions, Inc undertakes each year in an effort to Send Encouragement to our Nation’s Deployed. Military Missions Inc is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting our military, our veterans, and their families on a year round basis.
“If someone is serving in the military on our behalf, then we are going to be sure to offer support and encouragement to them no matter what time of the year it happens to be,” says Military Missions Inc founder, Beth Pennington. “As we celebrate Easter with our families, our troops will not have the opportunity to be with their loved ones. Instead they will be standing watch over each of us, protecting us from harm and defending our liberties. Each one is a parent, a sibling, a child, a spouse, a friend, and an American. Let’s join together and send our troops some encouragement as well as our thanks.”
There are a number of ways in which people can get involved in OPERATION S.E.N.D. EASTER. Military Missions, Inc. will be accepting donations in the form of care package items, personal cards and letters written to the troops, and monetary donations to cover the postage needed to mail packages overseas.
Schools, churches, organizations, businesses, and individuals from all over the USA participate in OPERATION S.E.N.D. EASTER. To find out how you can get involved in this endeavor, visit http://military-missions.org.
You may contact the organization via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling or texting 859-221-9477. Donations can be dropped off or mailed to the office located in the Millpond Shopping Center at 3650 Boston Road, Suite 138, Lexington, Kentucky 40514.
The care package assembly night will be on Wed., March 15, 2017 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. This will allow time for the packages to reach the deployed troops for Easter. Due to limited office space, if you are interested in attending the care package assembly, please click here to register.
If you know of someone who will be deployed during the Easter holiday this year, they can be added to the care package mailing list at www.military-missions.org/add-a-hero/
In 2016, you made it possible to ship care packages to thousands of deployed service men & women. As a matter of fact, we hit a new record. In years past, we have hovered around the 6,000 package mark. However, last year, we were able to serve our troops by sending… (DRUM ROLL PLEASE)….. 7,000 care packages!!
Again, “Buddy Boxes” were sent during the Christmas season to ensure we reached as many deployed troops as possible. We have received many thank you notes and letters. It is so heart warming to read their letters, and it’s VERY clear that receiving a care package makes their day a little better!
We want to thank anyone and everyone who was involved in any way. None of this would be possible without YOU! While our list of deployed Heroes continues to grow, so does our passion and determination to assure that every single one of them receives a care package.
Thank you for partnering with Military Missions, Inc. to support and encourage those that ensure freedoms known only to Americans. We invite you stay tuned and help us make 2017 even better!
