Cathedral Corporation Supports Troops By Assisting With Card Drives Across The Country
Press release from the issuing company
ROME and ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 16, 2007 - Cathedral Corporation will print a half million postcards of support bound for U.S. troops serving overseas. The business communications provider is producing postcards for Xerox Corporation's Let's Say ThanksSM program, a free and easy way for the public to send messages to U.S. servicemen and women.
The postcards are designed by children ages 6-14 from across the country. Of the 500,000 blank postcards printed by Cathedral Corporation, 130,000 were used around the Memorial Day holiday in San Diego at the largest Let's Say Thanks card drive for the troops to date. The remainder will be used at various local and regional events throughout 2007. When signed by members of the public, each will send a unique message of support for the men and women serving aboard. More than 10.7 million people have sent well-wishes to troops around the globe through www.LetsSayThanks.com <http://www.letssaythanks.com/> and at local card drives across the country.
"The children's artwork coming off the production press is uplifting and sure to inspire the troops," said Larry Beasley, vice president of sales and marketing, Cathedral Corporation. "We are proud to do our part to support the men and women of the armed services."
Cathedral Corporation prints the postcards on a Xerox iGen3 Digital Production Press at the company's Rome location, while military support organization Give2TheTroops includes the postcards in care packages sent to deployed U.S. forces in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere around the world.
"Cathedral Corporation is to be commended for helping the public thank our troops, and assisting us with this program at the local level," said Mike Brannigan, president of Xerox's United States Solutions Group. "As a Xerox Premier Partner, Cathedral Corporation's generous donation to this program goes a long way toward demonstrating that our relationship is more than doing business - it's about giving back as well."
