CRANFORD—Enterprise Rent-A-Car employees recently volunteered with Operation Shoebox New Jersey by working at the concession stands at TD Bank Ballpark. During various Somerset Patriots baseball games this summer, Enterprise employees and their families worked together preparing and serving food to fans in support of the men and women deployed outside of the United States.
With over 25 volunteers, Enterprise Rent-A-Car helped Operation Shoebox New Jersey raised more than $3,000, the equivalent to approximately 165-180 care packages. Operation Shoebox will send these care packages to United States military troops overseas.
“We want to thank everyone who came out to volunteer during the games. We were really happy to work with Operation Shoebox New Jersey and support the great work they do for our troops and in our communities,” said Erica Smutko, human resources manager for Enterprise Rent-A-Car in New Jersey. “It was great to spend time with family and friends while raising money for a worthy cause at the same time.”
Operation Shoebox was founded in 2003 to send support to the United States troops to help raise their morale and let them know they are cared about. Operation Shoebox sends care packages, letters and various items that can be beneficial to them during their deployment. The organization has over 1300 dedicated volunteers in three locations and also volunteers all across the United States accomplishing their mission.
