Pack a Snack Sack For The Troops
June 2, 2018
Clearwater Threshers Veteran and Military Appreciation Night
Donations of 7 specific items were collected up until May 31st at Spectrum Field. These items were then set up via The Stano Foundation in a certain area during the June 2nd Clearwater Threshers game and fans were able to come by, write a thank you note or color a picture to our troops and then grab a snack sack (drawstring bags donated by The Clearwater Threshers) and fill it up with the 7 items to then be incorporated into our care packages going out to our deployed. 500 snack sacks were completed at this event!!!
“The Clearwater Threshers were honored to team up with The Stano Foundation for the “Snack Sack” packing event. This was such an awesome addition to our Veterans and Military Appreciation Night and one we hope to continue for years to come. In just a few short hours, the fans in attendance packed 500 “Snack Sacks” for our troops. Each one also included a personalized message of support that I know our troops will enjoy reading. The Stano Foundation did a fantastic job of organizing all of the donations and making sure the assembly lines ran smooth and efficiently. We could not have been more pleased with the outcome and I know each one of our fans that had a chance to pack a bag feels the same way!”
