MTLL 10/11 All-Stars Help Mercury Insurance and San Diego Padres with Pre-July 4 Event for U.S. Troops
Mercury Insurance employees and the San Diego Padres got a jump start on the Independence Day holiday with the help of Mission Trails 10/11 All-Stars (and families/friends) when volunteers from each organization teamed up to assemble 1,000 care packages for U.S. Marines and Sailors serving in Afghanistan.
After watching a great win by the Padres over the Reds, the goal of putting together 1,000 care packages was largely met due to the help of several MTLL 10/11 All-Star players, families, and friends. Some filled multiple bags at a time. Others spent extra time writing personal Thank You messages to the troops that were included in each care package. Collectively, MTLL played a huge part in the success of what proved to be a tremendous event. To top it all off, San Diego Padre Pitcher Ian Kennedy showed up to help fill care packages and sign autographs. Ian even took a photo with our MTLL crew.
All involved agreed, this was an awesome event and a very rewarding experience for our MTLL families to give a little back to the troops.
Thank you Mercury Insurance and the San Diego Padres for allowing the MTLL community to assist in this effort. Very special thanks to Coach Chad Galvas for doing all the leg work in arranging MTLL's participation.
