Come Help Moe’s Southwest Grill and Operation Pinecone Wrap Up a Heartfelt Holiday for U.S. Troops at Leesburg Moes this Saturday December 6th from 9am to 12pm.
Eleven Area Restaurants to Serve as Donation Drop Sites for Our Troops
CHANTILLY, VA – Eleven DC-area restaurants better known for wrapping up the freshest Southwestern flavors are banding together this holiday season with Operation Pinecone to send holiday care packages to our deserving troops serving overseas. The local Moe’s Southwest Grill restaurants located in Alexandria, Ashburn, Chantilly, College Park, Falls Church, Herndon, Leesburg, Manassas, South Riding, Silver Spring, and Stafford will be collecting care package items such as CD's, magazines, toiletries and individually wrapped snacks, along with cash donations to support our troops while they serve away from their families this holiday season.
In addition to collecting care package items from November 24 until December 13th , the local Moe's Southwest Grills will be making a donation to Operation Pinecone to help cover the cost of the care packages being mailed all over the world. Operation Pinecone is a grassroots, nonprofit organization based in Loudoun County, and consists of all volunteers. As one of Operation Pinecone's largest corporate sponsors, Moe's Southwest Grill is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of our troops this season.
"It is great to see the community come together to support our troops, many of which have been away from home for quite some time" said Frank Maresca, owner of the Chantilly and South Riding Moe's locations. "At Moe's Southwest Grill we pride ourselves on serving our communities and this is a great way for all of us to send our support and get in the holiday spirit."
Moe's Southwest Grill and Operation Pinecone will assemble all donated items into care packages to ship to overseas troops as well as those recovering at several U.S. hospitals, including Walter Reed Army Medical Center and Bethesda National Naval Medical Center. A list of items most in need and what to look for when shopping for our troops can be found at www.welcome2moes.net .
Additionally, Moe's is looking to their neighbors to not only lend their hearts but also a hand in assembling the care packages. From 9am to 12noon on December 6st at the Moe’s in Leesburg, and again on December 13th from 9am to 12noon at the Moe’s in Chantilly, Moe's will be hosting packing parties and encourages anyone interested in supporting this worthwhile cause to come down, help pack up the boxes and enjoy a meal on Moe's.
