Paradies Lagardère Treats Troops with More  Than 1.2 Million Donated Items

Passengers’ in-kind donations help support service men and women around the world

ATLANTA – Paradies Lagardère, the North American travel retail and restaurateur leader, is proud to announce that its customers donated more than 1.2 million items of need in 2016 to our military service men and women around the globe through the Treat Our Troops program.

Paradies Lagardère’s Treat Our Troops program provides travelers, as well as airline and airport employees, the opportunity to purchase goods – from socks and snacks to phone cards and sundries – which are then distributed to military personnel overseas through the USO and other military service organizations. The program also includes free meals for troops from Memorial Day to Independence Day, and “pay it forward” opportunities in which customers donate meals for active or retired military personnel.
