Maine Oxy Supports the Troops - 9/17/2012
Maine Oxy has brought a renewed focus to its support for men and women serving overseas through the Maine Oxy Supports the Troops (M.O.S.T.) program. The company first began sending care packages to the troops in 2004, when five Maine Oxy employees were activated and sent overseas.
President Dan Guerin sought to reinvigorate the company’s support for the troops in 2012, prompting marketing manager Bob Smith, who served in Iraq in 2004-05, to create a display where customers could drop off donations at each of the company’s 13 locations. The M.O.S.T. program now sends out around 50 care packages a month containing food, supplies and personalized letters.
Master Sergeant Kenneth P. Saulsbury of the U.S. Army’s 11th TTSB, who is stationed at Kandahar Airbase in Afghanistan along with members of the Maine Air National Guard, wrote in a letter to the company, “The thoughtfulness and generosity of Maine Oxy is a reminder to us of the support we have back home. It truly does have a positive impact on the morale of our men and women.”
