TOPS TEAMS UP WITH PEOPLE INC. ON STARS FOR OUR TROOPS PROGRAM
What: Tops Markets is pleased to partner once again with People Inc. as we prepare stars from retired US Flags for our Veterans, active military personnel, and first responders as part of Tops Stars for Our Troops program. Over 60 volunteers from People Inc. will be on hand throughout the week at Tops Headquarters to assist with this hands on project preparing over 25,000 stars that will be presented to our local heroes.

Over the summer Tops collected over 3,000 flags during a two week time frame at 33 of its stores for proper retirement. Of those flags 500 were selected to be properly laundered by Colvin Cleaners to have the stars removed and presented to those heroes among us as a sign of respect for their service to our Country. The stars are packaged with the following saying: I am part of our American Flag that has flown over the USA. I can no longer fly. The sun and wind have caused me to become tattered and torn. Please carry me as a reminder that you are not forgotten.

The stars will be redistributed across the chains three state imprint in nursing homes, VA Hospitals, on honor flights, and to Veterans at Tops Friendly Markets stores.

Who: Tops Friendly Markets Representatives Representatives and Volunteers from People Inc.

When/Where: Wednesday-Friday October 2-October 4, 2019 10:00 am – 2:00 pm Tops Headquarters 1760 Wehrle Drive, Williamsville, NY
