May is National Military Appreciation Month
May is National Military Appreciation Month and it’s an opportunity to show your appreciation for the sacrifices and successes of the men and women in our armed forces. If you want to get involved, here are a few simple ways you can show your support for military members of the present and past.
1. Display the American flag on your home or business. What an easy way to show how proud you are to be an American! Just be sure Old Glory is correctly aligned! Whether hung vertically or horizontally, the flag should be positioned with the field of stars at the top left.
2. Send a care package to a member of the military. Community® Coffee Company runs a fabulous program called Military Match.
It’s truly a gift basket, sent with care! Did you know more than 2 point 2 million men and women serve in the U.S. military? By doubling orders for free, Community® Coffee Company ensures all servicemen and servicewomen have the opportunity to get a taste of home.
In fact, Community has now shipped more than 5 point 1 million cups of Community® Coffee to active-duty military personnel through the program. Here’s how you can be a part of it!
Purchase four bags or boxes of Community® Coffee from CommunityCoffee.com for those serving in the military. The company then matches the order with four additional bags or boxes, ships the extra four items at its cost and sends a total of eight items plus a signature Military Match mug to the overseas or stateside military base address of your choice. You can choose from your favorite blends which include a variety of sizes, formats and flavors.
In addition to the great coffee and the mug, Community® Coffee includes personal, hand-written notes from its employees and customers in the Military Match gift box to show those who are serving our country that we are grateful for their service and sacrifice. So head to CommunityCoffee.com/MilitaryMatch to get started!
3. Donate your time by visiting an older veteran or wounded vet. A simple visit can brighten a day and help a veteran to know they are not forgotten. If you’re not sure where to start, you could always contact a nursing home, veterans hospital or your local American Legion to be pointed in the right direction.
And those are 3 simple ways to show your appreciation and care this National Military Appreciation Month and beyond!
