We’re very proud of our own Edie James! Edie volunteered with Operation Buckeye and mobilized her family and many agents from the Keller Williams Capital Partners Realty market center to donate their time to this very worthy cause.
Operation Buckeye began in Jim Caronis’ garage when he sent 10 boxes to troops overseas. In the past 6 years, his organization has packed and sent over 20,000 boxes to Ohio troops overseas. This last weekend they prepared 1100 boxes over five hours. Along with an American flag and a buckeye, recipients will find items such as Beef Jerky, candy, drink mixes, snack foods, canned fruit, granola bars, tooth brushes, toothpaste, books, batteries, deodorant, and foot powder. Jim researches the names of Ohio troops overseas and the organization ensures that at least 6 boxes arrive for the unit of the Ohio soldier.
If you know of an Ohio soldier overseas or would like to donate your time or money to this cause, please contact Operation Buckeye for details.
