“One of Paradies Lagardère’s Core Values is giving back to the community. Providing free meals in our airport restaurants to our country’s military personnel through our Food and Beverage Division’s Treat Our Troops program is our way of saying thank you for serving our country,” said Bill Casey, senior vice president, Food and Beverage, Paradies Lagardère. “We’ve fed thousands of service members since the program started in 2013, and this initiative during Thanksgiving is just a small way of showing our appreciation for all that our service members do.”
Treat Our Troops is a national program that facilitates customer donations in many of the U.S. airports in which Paradies Lagardère operates stores. Shoppers are given the opportunity to purchase a wide variety of useful items such as snacks, beverages, toiletries, reading materials, and electronics, which are then placed in a collection box. Working in conjunction with airports and the United Service Organization (USO), Paradies Lagardère coordinates packaging and delivery of these donations to USO offices across the country. In 2016, the program resulted in donations of more than 1.2 million products to military men and women worldwide.
Paradies Lagardère also offers free meals to U.S. military personnel between Memorial Day and Independence Day. Learn more about these and other initiatives by visiting www.paradieslagardere.com.
