MGM and Fox Partner for "Skyfall" Care Package Initiative
Beginning at 10:00am Feb. 12 at the Army National Guard armory in Van Nuys, California, volunteers including Military families, war Veterans, fans and more will be on hand to assemble up to 7,000 SKYFALL branded care packages to be sent to active duty soldiers overseas. The packages will include personal care items such as body wash, deodorant, shaving cream and other toiletries and will feature a DVD copy of the explosive 23rd installment of the James Bond franchise, SKYFALL.
“SKYFALL is the most popular Bond film ever made and an action-packed film like this can really boost morale with our troops overseas,” said Operation Gratitude founder Carolyn Blashek. “Operation Gratitude has been supporting our servicemen and women for 10 years and this partnership was a great opportunity to provide some much needed entertainment along with toiletries and personal letters that our Military heroes greatly enjoy.”
Bond fans in Southern California are encouraged to come out and support “Operation SKYFALL” by helping assemble the packages the morning of February 12 in Van Nuys. For more information on how to volunteer please contact OpGratVolunteer1 (at) yahoo.com.
Fans can also send donations in the name of “Operation SKYFALL” directly to Operation Gratitude by visiting www.OperationGratitude.com.
