HIGH POINT, NC -- Terri Starnes-Bryant, president of Microtronic US (High Point, NC), a cashless payment solutions provider, is asking industry members to consider joining her in supporting "Treats For Troops." The nonprofit organization sends care packages to the nation's troops on the frontlines.

"I reach out because I support our troops and you never know who your contacts may know that can bring in items in bulk," Starnes-Bryant said in a recent email to her industry colleagues.

Starnes-Bryant said she has petitioned the National Automatic Merchandising Association to ask exhibitors at its April 26-29 OneShow in Chicago to donate products left behind after the show to Treats for Troops. "A truck has already been arranged to pick everything up if we can make it happen," she said.

A list of suggested donation items is available at treatsfortroops.info. They include instant soups and beverages, coffee and tea, cookies, crackers, granola bars, microwaveable popcorn, beef jerky and tuna snack kits, along with nonfood items like toiletries, stationary and playing cards.

The Microtronics president said she is able to collect items from industry members in her area and send them to Treats for Troops. Donations can also be sent directly to Treats For Troops, 29807 SR54, Wesley Chapel, FL 33543.
