July 4th – 1/2 price food at Saul Good

saul goodSAUL GOOD RESTAURANT & PUB JOINS FORCES WITH MILITARY MISSIONS FOR A JULY 4TH FUNDRAISER TO HELP SHIP CARE PACKAGES TO DEPLOYED SOLDIERS

On July 4th, all Saul Good Restaurant & Pub locations in Lexington Ky will offer 1/2 price on all dine-in food as an incentive to generate donations for Military Missions, Inc.

Military Missions, Inc. is a non profit organization dedicated to providing care packages and support for every Kentucky soldier deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan, and other locations. These care packages contain essential items (eye drops, baby wipes, foot powder) and sundries (snack food, puzzle books, playing cards). The cost to fill each package, excluding donated items, exceeds $20. In addition, it will cost approximately $10 to mail each package.

Last December, during Operation S.E.N.D. Christmas, Military Missions sent 2,000 packages to deployed soldiers.  In addition, over 3,000 unit bags and boxes were shipped during the remainder of the year. Thousands of our troops are still deployed overseas and it’s important to let them know we have not forgotten them. Our military men and women sacrifice so much for us, we should dig deep into our hearts and pockets to show our appreciation for them.

“We are thrilled to be a part of Military Missions quest to encourage and thank our hometown heroes,” said Rob Perez, owner of Saul Good Restaurant & Pub.

Saul Good Restaurant & Pub is an American pub, which serves a wide variety of chef driven food, including hand tossed pizzas, gourmet burgers, farm fresh salads and features a chocolate bar. The restaurant will offer ½ price on all food items (excludes kid meals and orders to go) on July 4, 2016, from noon to 7:00 pm. Donations to Military Missions will be encouraged.

Saul Good Restaurant & Pub now has 3 locations to serve the Lexington area:

Plaza at Fayette Mall, 3801 Mall Rd (859) 273-4663

Hamburg, 1808 Alysheba Way (859) 317-9200

Sam’s Club Donation Drive

Military Missions at Sam's ClubMilitary Missions has scheduled an upcoming donation drive for Saturday May 21 and Sunday May 22 at the Sam’s Club on New Circle Rd in Lexington. This donation drive is one of our very important events as it brings in many of the needed items which enable us to send care packages to our growing list of deployed troops.

In order to make this donation drive a success, we need YOUR help. We plan to be at Sam’s Club collecting items from 10am – 4pm on Saturday and Sunday. We hope that you will consider finding a way to come out and help us support the troops.

Stop by and help us man the table or shop for a few items on our list during your regular shopping and drop them off as you exit. Remember the sacrifice being made for each of us by our deployed troops and their families. We can all afford to sacrifice a little to show them how much we support and appreciate their efforts.

Even if you can’t make it out to help us, please share the information with your friends and family so they have the chance to participate. You can also donate online at www.military-missions.org/donate.

If you would like to become a volunteer for Military Missions or have questions, please email us at volunteer@military-missions.org or call or text 859-221-9477.

As always, we are extremely grateful for your support of our troops through Military Missions, Inc.

Calling All Cards! Calling All Cards!

CARDSWe are in desperate need of cards!

Do you love making cards? Or writing letters? Are a member of a group? If you answered YES to any of these questions, then you can help us out!

We send hundreds of cards to our deployed troops throughout the year. Right now our supply is too low to cover our numbers for the next bulk shipment.  We need general cards… NOT Christmas or holiday themed. You can write a quick note of appreciation or thank you on the inside. The troops also LOVE cards made by young kids.

Do NOT date the cards/letters. Also, we do NOT need the envelopes.

If you would like to help out, please send the cards to us at:

Military Missions, 3650 Boston Rd, Suite 146, Lexington Ky 40514

Thank you!
