Press release from the issuing company

“Operation We Care Day” was declared in the City of Salisbury, Maryland on Feb. 8, 2016 by the Hon. Jacob R. Day, Mayor of the City of Salisbury. The proclamation honored Minuteman Press owners Diana and Jeff Merritt for their year-round efforts in sending care packages and supporting local military, law enforcement, and fire/EMS departments through Operation We Care, their 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

SALISBURY, Md. - The Hon. Jacob R. Day, Mayor of the City of Salisbury, proclaimed February 8th, 2016 as “Operation We Care Day” in the City of Salisbury, Maryland. Operation We Care is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that was started by Minuteman Press franchise owners Diana and Jeff Merritt to support local troops with care packages and other important services.

Jeff and Diana Merritt help coordinate the year-round efforts of local citizens, businesses, and civic organizations as care package items are collected, sorted, packed, and then sent to Delmarva Troops. Operation We Care also partners with sixteen local schools so students are able to participate in this wonderful cause and give thanks to the troops.

In addition to sending packages to service members, Operation We Care works with the Wounded Warrior Project, and helps Veterans with various issues; including mobility issues through the building of ramps, finding temporary homes for pets when re-deployed, meeting returning Vets at the airport, and “virtually anything else we can do to help,” noted Jeff Merritt.

“We salute Diana and Jeff Merritt for their efforts, while thanking those whom they serve through Operation We Care for their service,” exclaimed Bob Heimbuch, Minuteman Press International Regional Vice President for Maryland/DC/Virginia.
