Unilever Operation Thank You Supports The Wall That Heals

In this season of giving, Unilever is extending an opportunity for service members and their families to save on everyday products, as well as supporting The Wall That Heals. Through February 28, 2014, commissary shoppers can check their in-store flyer to find coupons to redeem at checkout as part of Unilever’s Operation Thank You program. Unilever will also donate $10,000 to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) to support The Wall That Heals.

The Wall That Heals is a touring exhibition that features a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. and a museum. Since its dedication in 1996, The Wall That Heals has visited more than 350 cities and towns throughout the nation, spreading the Memorial’s healing legacy to millions.

Months ago, Unilever asked its Operation In Touch Facebook community to suggest charities for support. Operation In Touch offers special saving, coupons and editorial content tailored to active military families. These Unilever customers overwhelmingly chose The Wall That Heals. This donation will ensure that The Wall That Heals can continue its journey in healing Vietnam veterans and their families and in teaching young people about the sacrifice of the Vietnam veterans through 2015.

“We want to give every community the chance to experience The Wall That Heals and donations like that of Unilever make this possible,” said Erika Ross, manager of The Wall That Heals. “It’s a wonderful example of service members supporting the generation of veterans who came before them.”
