Paradies Lagardère retail stores at Memphis International Airport introduces “Treat Our Troops” program

MEMPHIS, TN, 2016-May-05 — /EPR Retail News/ — Paradies Lagardère, which operates retail stores at Memphis International Airport (MEM), has introduced “Treat Our Troops,” a program that allows passengers to purchase goods to be sent to U.S. military men and women serving abroad. MEM is the 71st airport to participate in the program.

This effort delivers a wide variety of useful items such as snacks, beverages, toiletries, reading materials, and electronics to military personnel across the world. Shoppers will be given the opportunity to purchase these items, which will then be placed in a collection box and shipped to the United Service Organization (USO) in Nashville. Baskets with possible donation items will be placed in the following retail stores at MEM:

  • A Concourse: River City Books & News
  • B Concourse: River City Books & News, Heritage Books & News, CNBC News, and River City Travelmart
  • C Concourse: CNBC News and River City Books & News

Treat Our Troops is a national program that facilitates customer donations in the airports in which Paradies Lagardère operates stores. Working in conjunction with airports and the USO, Paradies Lagardère coordinates packaging and delivery of these donations to USO offices across the country. In 2015, the program resulted in donations of more than 660,000 products to military men and women across the globe.

“Paradies Lagardère is proud to partner with MEM and the USO to implement the Treat Our Troops program,” said Scott Szczepanski, general manager of Paradies Lagardère’s operations at the airport. “We enjoy providing an opportunity for our customers to demonstrate their gratitude for our troops and their families.”

“Treat Our Troops provides each of us with an opportunity to literally give back to our military,” said Scott Brockman, president and CEO of the Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority. “We are honored to partner with Paradies Lagardère for this worthy cause.”

“Paradies Lagardère appreciates MEM bringing Treat Our Troops to its travelers. This program ensures essential items such as toiletries and beverages, as well as fun snack items, are provided to the brave men and women serving our country in the military, thanking them for their sacrifice,” said Gregg Paradies, president and CEO of Paradies Lagardère.

About OCRF
Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) is the oldest and largest charity in the United States funding ovarian cancer research.

Each year there will be approximately 22,000 new cases of ovarian cancer in the United States, and nearly 15,500 women will die of the disease. Currently there is no effective means of early detection.

Since 1998, OCRF has awarded over $65 million to ovarian cancer researchers around the country. OCRF-sponsored investigators are developing innovative strategies for early detection; exploring the genetics that increase risk for ovarian cancer; understanding the underlying molecular biology of the disease; identifying new and better targets for treatment; and deciphering how and why ovarian cancer spreads, and how to stop it. OCRF also supports a national program, Woman to Woman, which in 2015 will be providing support through more than 20 hospitals around the country to women in treatment for any gynecologic cancer, as well as their families, by pairing them with survivor volunteers who offer one-on-one emotional support and mentoring.

If you’re interested in joining the fight, there are many ways to help. Make a donation, consider hosting one of our indoor spinning events, Ovarian Cycle, in your hometown, or contact us and we can help you create a fundraiser of your own. Visitwww.ocrf.org to learn more.
