Share your christmas with those serving for us! Ensuring the freedom that we sometimes take for granted.
About 6 weeks ago, we received an order for multiple cannoli kits to ship to Virginia. Personally, I didn’t even question the use, but my helper for the day asked, “What do you think they will be used for.” Not giving it a second thought, I said, “probably a wedding.”
Two weeks ago, I received an email, from someone in the military, serving in Afghanistan. He said that his wife ordered the cannoli, then shipped them to him. All of the cannoli (over 150 of them) arrived in perfect form. He shared with his base for “Italian Night” and they were all enjoyed. He wanted to let me know how much he appreciated them! He promised to send pictures, and as soon as I receive them, I will post.
That same week, I received a call from another individual asking if we shipped to APO’s. I mentioned this past experience and we decided to give it a try. This time shipping to Iraq. The following Monday, we shipped over 100 cannoli to our fine service men and women in Iraq and to our surprise, they arrived on Friday, all in tact! Again, response was greatly appreciated – it was so nice to be able to experience the simple tastes from home, especially during the holidays.
So, while we can’t guarantee that this will be the experience EVERY time, we have had great success sharing our Italian favorites with our military.
