Volunteers Pack 1100 Boxes for Ohio Troops

“>Edie Interview Channel 10 news Operation Buckeye

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.

Channel 10 was there to cover the event, as was Google for Veterans and Families.

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.
