San Diego PostalAnnex+ Franchisees Support Veterans

San Diego PostalAnnex+ Franchisees Support Injured Warriors

$5,000 Donation to Help Get Them Home for the Holidays

SAN DIEGO, California. (11/14/2012) – The 65 San Diego county PostalAnnex+ franchise owners are donating $5,000 to San Diego’s Warrior Foundation to help injured active duty and veteran service members get home for the holidays.

“There’s nothing like waking up Christmas morning in your hometown bed,” said Steve Collo, president of San Diego owners’ group. “Almost all of these heroes are being treated in local care facilities and getting them home would be a great boost to morale in the middle of their recovery.”

In addition to the cash donation, through the end of November, all greater San Diego PostalAnnex+ locations are also collecting donations of needed goods and supplies. A needs list is available on the company’s website at Visitors can even donate to the travel fund directly through the secure website.

The Warrior Foundation assists, honors, and supports four groups of military men and women who have bravely served and sacrificed for our country: those who are seriously injured; warriors exposed to IED blasts; service members undergoing physical and occupational therapy; and those who have been medically retired.

This partnership with the Warrior Foundation holds personal significance for many of the store owners. Since 2005, approximately 20 percent of new PostalAnnex+ franchises have been sold to military veterans participating in the VetFran program. During the 2012 year-to-date, VetFran participants have purchased 28 percent of the new stores.

In addition to supporting military service members, PostalAnnex+ offers a one-stop solution for many home office and business service needs; shipping through UPS, FedEx and the USPS, private mailbox rental, packaging and shipping supplies, notary public, printing and copying services, office supplies and more.
