Marie Callender’s Comforts From Home Project makes it easy to support the brave men and women of the U.S. military. You can enjoy a delicious meal and support our troops at the same time!
Living in Las Vegas, we have an Air Force base right in town and another outside of town so I have had the privilege of meeting many military families. Military life is not easy state side and I can imagine that being deployed abroad is even harder. That's why I'm loving the new Comforts From Home program from Marie Callender’s.
The program is really easy to use. Simply enter the eight-digit code found on specially marked packages of Marie Callender’s dinners and desserts online at www.ComfortsFromHome.com, and Marie Callender's will make a $.50 donation to USO2GO. USO2GO is a USO program that brings kits filled with electronics, sports gear, books, games and more to troops stationed in remote locations around the world. These packages are so great especially for service men and women who don't have family to send them bits of home.
Of course I had to give the Marie Callender's meals a try after entering my codes. The lasagna was delicious, but I have to say that the mini pies are amazing! They are the perfect size for a little sweet treat when you need one.
Have you heard of Thunderclap?
