Office Furniture Partnership out of New Jersey went the extra mile, miles actually, as they shipped 1,000 containers of goods overseas to our men and women in military service. But these were not ordinary containers. These 3.620 inch diameter by 12 inch long clear plastic tubes with vinyl caps, known as Tube-velopes, were filled with all sorts of items for our military comrades. Candy, games, reading materials, and more were inserted into the 1,000 tubes in a project known as “Hugs From Home”.
As part of a community service project the business took on the expense of gathering all the goods for the containers, the Tube-velopes and the cost of shipping the items to the troops. But the success is in the responses, which you can read by clicking the link below, and feel the hugs.
