Ruscilli’s Community Involvement Committee recently completed a drive to collect ‘most needed items’ to be sent to our troops serving overseas!

We collected (1560) Slim Jim Sticks, (630) Packs of Fruit Snacks, (614) Packs of Crackers, (227) Razors, (117) Packs of Tuna w/crackers, (48) Deodorants, (29) Packs of peanuts, and (23) Hand Sanitizers!

We partnered with an organization called Operation Buckeye. Operation Buckeye was formed with the sole purpose of sending boxes to our troops as a way to thank them for their efforts and to bring a touch of home to them. The boxes sent contain food and snacks, personal hygiene items, reading materials, and good wishes of love and support.

Operation Buckeye provides caring civilians the opportunity to show their appreciation and respect to the men and women of our military stationed in hostile and remote regions of the world. To learn more, you can visit: http://www.operationbuckeye.org/.
