Miss Tennessee USA 2014 to be made honorary board member of Operation Troop Aid
Kristy Landers Niedenfuer, Miss Tennessee USA 2014, has a history of volunteering for worthwhile organizations and has recently chosen to partner with Operation Troop Aid (OTA). In appreciation of her support, Mark Woods– a 21- year Navy Veteran, and Founder of Operation Troop Aid– will ceremoniously appoint Miss Tennessee as an honorary Board Member of this outstanding military charity.
Harris Jewelry™ launched Operation: Teddy Bear in support of Operation Troop Aid in March 2012. They offer a full line of uniformed military teddy bears for sale at each of 22 locations nationwide. A portion of every sale is donated to Operation Troop Aid to support their care package program and other forms of assistance to service members in need. To date, this campaign has raised over $170,000 for OTA.
In 2013, Harris Jewelry™ began a new initiative to further support Operation Troop Aid and the children of military families. Through MyBuddyBears.com, customers can purchase a teddy bear and ‘gift it’ to the child of a United States service member. OTA will make sure these generous gifts are delivered to deserving military children – plus – Harris Jewelry also donates a portion of every bear sale to Operation Troop Aid. It’s a gift that gives twice!!
Don’t miss this opportunity to meet Miss Tennessee, purchase a military teddy bear and show your support for Operation Troop Aid and the Clarksville military community! Saturday, March 8th from 3:00 – 5:00pm at Harris Jewelry in Governor’s Square Mall (2801 Wilma Rudolph Blvd. Suite 140)
