Stater Bros. Charities Sends 1,000 Care Packages
to Deployed Local Service Members 

San Bernardino, California (June 15, 2016) –  Over 200 members of the Stater Bros. “Family” of Employees, friends, suppliers and representatives from Operation Community Cares (a local organization that supports our troops) gathered to prepare 1,000 care packages for local military members currently serving overseas in celebration of Armed Forces Day.  

The event took place on Saturday, May 21, 2016 at Stater Bros. Corporate Offices and Distribution Center located at 301 S. Tippecanoe Avenue, San Bernardino, California 92408.

We at OCC are so excited to have worked with Stater Bros Charities to continue the mission to boost morale for our men and women overseas. The feedback we continue to get has been overwhelming as to how much a care package can do,” said Ryan Orr, Vice President of Operation Community Cares. “To think some simple items sent with love, can lift spirits and make them smile! We are told it saves lives! God Bless Stater Bros. and all they do for our community,” Orr further added. 

“Stater Bros. has a rich legacy of service to this great nation and a long-standing commitment to the support of our country’s veterans and service members,” stated Jack H. Brown, Executive Chairman of Stater Bros. Markets and a Navy Veteran.   “I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Armed Forces Day than by preparing care packages from the Heartland for our local military members to let them know we’re thinking of them and praying that they come home safe . . . and come home soon,” Brown continued.

About Operation Community Cares
Operation Community Cares is an organization that proactively supports the health and welfare of our American Servicemen and Women across the globe. Far too often, the commitment of our service people is forgotten and OCC specializes in programs that help service people to communicate and connect with family, friends and loved ones through the unique web-based environment. They have various programs that aim to support the troops’ personal needs. Best of all, OCC carries its commitment to service people that are at home as well. For some, returning home can be a very trying and stressful experience. Our troops deserve the very best.
