SHERBURNE – U.S. Army Specialist Collin Miller presented New York Central Mutual in Sherburne with an American flag Wednesday for their continued participation in the “Adopt a United States Soldier” program.
The program has been connecting civilians with deployed soldiers for seven years, helping soldiers receive items that are not readily available in their area.
According to NYCM Human Resources Officer Eva Sherwood, the Sherburne branch has sponsored over 20 service men and women since 2008. Hygiene products, food, games, puzzles and books are just a few of the items that the company collects. Individual purchase items and add them to care packages that are mailed over-seas every few weeks and every holiday.
