The employees of Allen Harim collected nonperishable supplies for care packages for U.S. troops serving overseas, in partnership with the nonprofit organization Operation We Care.

The company also donated $500 to help offset mailing costs.

Collection boxes were located at facilities in Harbeson and Seaford, and staff from North Carolina sent up boxes of supplies in Allen Harim trucks carrying eggs.

Operation We Care, based in Salisbury, Maryland, was founded in 2007 by Jeff and Diana Merritt. The group has volunteers who help pack more than 2,000 care packages a year to troops serving overseas. They also donate locally to law enforcement agencies and fire departments in Sussex, Worcester, Wicomico, Somerset and Dorchester counties.
