America Supporting Americans (ASA) is proud to partner with Janss Marketplace, the merchants, and NewMark Merrill Companies in A Salute to Our Troops. Please join us at the opening ceremony of A Salute to Our Troops on June 11th at 1 PM. Follow the signs.
ASA sends care packages to our troops serving overseas. Each package contains donated snacks, toiletries, books, clothing, and games, in addition to handwritten cards and letters from members of the community.
Our mission is to raise the morale of our troops as high as the clouds. Our goal is to reach more of our warriors each year by sending over 500 packages, to increase community awareness of the positive effect these packages have on our troops. We accomplish this through community outreach with events such as A Salute to Our Troops.
Hero’s Park, the lovely grass area in the Janss Marketplace, will be filled with flags with the names of our beloved military personnel who currently serve, those who are veterans and those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
For $25 you can purchase a personalized flag, which will be in Hero’s Park from June 11th through June 21st that includes a sponsored care package with a personal note from you. After the event, the flag can be picked up and taken home.
