June 19th through July 29th
Jarosch Bakery is partnering with Packages4Patriots, a mission of Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit in Elk Grove Village. Packages4Patriots seeks to lift morale and put smiles on the faces of our military men and women by sending care packages addressed to individual Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines fighting overseas. Each care package contains treats, hygiene products, entertainment items, and personal letters of appreciation.
Since their start in June of 2010, Packages4Patriots has shipped over 7,000 care packages totaling 86,117 pounds. They have packing events every 3rd Tuesday of the month from 7-8 pm at The Holy Spirit Church. Currently, P4P has plenty of supplies, but is lacking the funds to ship more boxes. Each package costs $15.50 to ship and we at Jarosch Bakery would like to help.
Beginning June 19th all the way through July 29th, you can purchase a Jarosch Bakery travel mug for a MINIMUM donation of $10.00. ALL PROFITS from the mugs will go to Packages for Patriots.
With each donation, you will receive:
- One Jarosch Bakery Travel Mug
- Free coffee for your mug
- Your choice of a free Donut, Sweet Roll, or Large Cookie (Custard Bismarks and Iced Cookies not included)
Bring your mug back to the bakery between 6/19-7/29 and receive the FREE Coffee & Sweet Treat combo each time! Coffee Mug supplies are limited – so be sure to get your mug early!
If the mugs run out during the promotion dates or you wish to make a donation without purchasing a mug, we will still accept donations! To show our appreciation for your contribution, choose a one-time treat of a free cake slice, éclair, custard bismark, whipped cream tart, or cream puff.
You can also donate directly through the Packages for Patriots website. We look forward to your help in sending even more care packages to our military men and women!
