While many associate Memorial Day with a day off of work, grilling out, and possibly heading to the beach, it is important to remember the true occasion of the day, remembering those lost while serving our country. We at Splash Packaging take pride in supporting our troops, and because of this we have created a list of ways to help honor the troops on this special day.
Write a Letter
One of the best ways to give back is to write a letter to either troops currently serving, or the survivors of a lost soldier in your community. Letting someone know that you care and are thinking of them is a priceless gift, and your letter will be appreciated and cherished for years to come.
Have a Candlelit Vigil
Brining your community together to remember those fallen is a powerful way to let those who have served know how much they are appreciated. Handing out paper shopping bags and small candles to your neighbors and creating a candlelit vigil in the community park or city center will bring awareness to the men and women who have served and are currently serving.
Send a Care Package
Buying simple things like candy bars, cards, and items that we take for granted and packaging them in wholesale packaging or putting them in bulk paper shopping bags for donation to an organization that sends care packages to the troops is a way to give in a small way that will mean a lot to the man or woman serving who receives your package.
Volunteering to help with care packages, support groups, or other community activities is another great way to show how much you care. Volunteer opportunities can be found at your city hall, or through a quick search of events in your area on the internet.
Spread the Word
One of the simplest ways to honor the troops is to spread the word about the true meaning of Memorial Day. Tell your friends about your plans to give back, and find others who want to do the same.
