Michigan Farm Market is partnering with Angel Ambassadors as well as local businesses to bring this idea to life. He brought some of those crates in to show the outpouring of support from local businesses.

      Each crate is filled up with local Michigan-made products ranging from popcorn to blueberries to cherry butter. The crates will be hand delivered, mailed, and shipped overseas over the next few weeks.

      To fill out a thank you card for a veteran, drop off or send a card to Michigan Farm Market in Traverse City or Ellsworth, and Angel Ambassadors in Petoskey. Organizers are still taking requests for gift crates to be sent to area veterans. To contact Michigan Farm Market, click here. To contact Angel Ambassadors, click here.
