On July 1, Bank of America of Palm Beach County kicked off its major collection drive for “we-care” package items for Forgotten Soldiers Outreach.
The collection drive will be at more than 50 banking center locations in Palm Beach County, which will now serve as official drop-off locations for we-care care package items through Sept. 11.
“What a great way to show their support of our troops by bringing awareness to the public and the customers of Bank of America,” said Lynelle Chauncey Zelnar, founder and executive director of Forgotten Soldiers Outreach. “This will certainly help get the word out of FSO’s mission that began in October 2003, of sending monthly we-care packages to our troops serving overseas. We are very excited and grateful to have Bank of America continue their efforts in supporting our charity.”
Zelnar was excited to announce FSO’s new program called Operation Pot of Joe (OPOJ), which will provide an essential piece of home to troops. For an additional $10 donation, you can now include free-trade organic coffee in we-care packages.
“Bank of America recognizes and appreciates the significant sacrifices our military and their families make every day,” said Robin Frost, Bank of America senior vice president/consumer market manager of Palm Beach County. “We are committed to help make opportunity possible for those who serve our country, and we are proud to partner with Forgotten Soldiers to provide support to our troops overseas.”

Forgotten Soldiers Outreach is a nationally recognized organization that has been sending monthly we-care packages to our troop serving overseas since 2003, covering all world theaters and all branches of service. Many of the recipients are fighting on the frontline. FSO’s mission is to reach out to those who do not receive any support from the home front by “sending that little bit of home, to assure they are not forgotten.” To date, FSO has benefited close to 250,000 military personnel.
