Liberty Creek Vineyards Proudly Supports Operation Gratitude through the Tunes for Troops Program
(May 1, 2012 – Modesto, CA): Liberty Creek Vineyards is proud to support Operation Gratitude’s efforts to send care packages to troops through its participation in the Tunes for Troops program. The Tunes for Troops program kicks off in May and runs through July. During this time, Liberty Creek Vineyards will:
- Donate $15,000 to Operation Gratitude to support their Spring/Summer Care Package Drive.
- Enable consumers to show their support via specially tagged bottles of Liberty Creek wine – donating up to an additional $10,000 to be used by Operation Gratitude to purchase music downloads for the care packages.
“We believe that each bottle of Liberty Creek wine honors our proud heritage rooted in the rich soils of California,” says Will Purvis, Brand Manager, Liberty Creek Vineyards. “We are honored to be able to give something back as part of Operation Gratitude’s care package program.”
Operation Gratitude sends care packages and letters personally addressed to U.S. Service Members including those who have been wounded while they are recovering in transition units.
“We are delighted to receive this support from Liberty Creek Wines, and we believe the music downloads will make our care packages even more meaningful,” says Carolyn Blashek, Founder of Operation Gratitude. “Music has the ability not only to heal the heart and soul, but also to make us feel at home – especially for soldiers who are miles away.”
