5,000 packages of appreciation for U.S. Troops on the way to Ft. Hood

Posted: Updated:

 

(KYTX) -  An East Texas business hits a major milestone, with more than 5,000 care packages sent to U.S. troops over-seas.

Today State Representative Bryan Hughes honored Wells Fargo advisors for their operation American Pride Program.

People in offices from Central Texas up into Arkansas work together to send a little love to the soldiers who keep us safe.

 

"We encourage them to write a thank you note or a note so that way when the soldiers opens it over seas, the service men or women, they'll have a note from someone here back home telling them how much we appreciate what they are doing."

Those care packages are on their way to Fort Hood to be sent overseas.

East Texas Copy Systems donated a truck for the trip.
