When Duty Calls in Long Island
MPS Hicksville in the United States, which produces a range of leaflet and label styles, has recently donated hundreds of toothbrushes the team received from Delta Dental to the Adopt a Battalion appeal that aims to help the men and woman deployed overseas.
The facility is planning to make further donations and this worthy cause is just one of a number of community outreach programs the site is supporting.
Terry Uminsky, Sales Production Manager, takes up the story: “I attended the Adopt a Battalion appeal and donated the toothbrushes which were gratefully received. Every year at our open enrollment Delta Dental sends MPS enough new toothbrushes to hand out to all our employees. This year we all agreed that they would better serve our deployed service men and women. The appeal had set up packing stations with teams of people of all ages diligently filling boxes and sorting through items for the troops. There was another group of people making address labels and taking care of all the other necessary paperwork. The team started packing our donation right away and we were presented with a certificate of appreciation. On display there was a large collection of thank you letters and postcards mailed to them by service men and women who explained how much the donated items meant to them.”
