Operation Support Our Troops America collects supplies for soldiers
CARY – Numerous trucks go in and out of the Sage Products building in Cary every day, but on Friday only one had the faces of fallen McHenry County soldiers printed on the side.
Joe Alger, chief operating officer for JA Frate in Crystal Lake, is in charge of collecting donations for Operation Support Our Troops America, a program that delivers supplies to members of the armed forces serving overseas. On Friday, he received a check for more than $1,200 and 100 cases of bath products for the troops.
Alger said the organization started collecting donations and supplies on Veterans Day. By the end of the year, his group will have collected around $8,000 in monetary donations and two 53-foot truckloads of supplies.
