Hertrich Family of Automobile Dealerships encouraged the public to help with the Snack Pack the Truck event, benefiting the USO.

Participants can visit any Hertrich location during September to donate requested snack items or visit hertrichs.com to make a monetary donation. Donations will go directly to USO Delaware.

Items will be placed at passenger airports. This is a high travel time for military members and their families, which has created a need for these snack items. Philadelphia and Baltimore-Washington International airports have USO lounges.

Requested items for the Snack Pack the Truck event include cases of water, canned Coca-Cola products, cases of Powerade 20 ounces or less, boxes of Slim Jim, single serve bags of peanuts, individual bags of fruit snacks, single serve bags of cookies, single serve bags of teddy grahams, ground coffee, cracker packs, animal crackers, plastic cups, 10-ounce plastic foam cups, 12-ounce packages of forks, knives and spoons, paper plates and napkins.

The Hertrich Family of Automobile Dealerships is also in its second year of their Hertrich Hires Heroes program, a mission to hire 500 members of the U.S. Armed Force Veterans, those currently serving and those that have served, including the National Guard and Reserve and their spouses, in five years.

Hertrich will match donations up to $2,500.
