Paradies Lagardère has donated 1.7 million items of need to active military service personnel worldwide through its Treat Our Troops program.
Paradies Lagardère’s Treat Our Troops program gives travelers, airline employees, and airport staff the opportunity to purchase goods to be distributed to military personnel overseas. Goods, which vary from socks and snacks to phone cards and sundries, are given out through the USO and other military service organizations.
The program also serves free meals to troops from Memorial Day to Independence Day and includes “pay it forward” opportunities, which allow customers to donate meals for retired military personnel.
“Paradies Lagardère is proud to coordinate the Treat Our Troops program that provides an important opportunity for our customers to demonstrate their gratitude for our troops and their families,” says Gregg Paradies, president and CEO of Paradies Lagardère. “These brave men and women make unbelievable sacrifices each and every day and deserve the appreciation.”
