They only need water, you would think that Instant Oatmeal would be included in MREs

Yeah Mark is our Chief Steward. Sounds like chalk one up for the union guys. One of the many reasons I LOVE working at Quaker Oats. BTW I am posting this from a Quaker Oats computer. They may ban many websites but this is not one of them.

I think I can scrounge up a box of some good instant quaker oats if I look around. I am still 'scrounging' for excellent deal on MRE's (cheapest, most fulfilling diet I can live on right now, save for EasyMac)

I sent them a quick thank you for showing their true American Spirit.

Here's another bit of good news forwarded to me in an email: ------------------------------------------------ I assume you have all seen the reports about how Sears is treating its reservist employees who are called up? By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being called up... Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all called up reservist employees for up to two years. I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution. Suggest we all shop at Sears, and be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement it well deserves. Pass it on. **** Someone else added this comment: So I decided to check it out before I sent it forward. I sent the> following email to the Sears Customer Service Department: I received this email and I would like to know if it is true. If it is, the Internet may have just become one very good source of advertisement for your store. I know I would go out of my way to buy products from Sears instead of another store for a like item even if it was cheaper at the other store. Here is their answer to my email: Dear Customer: Thank you for contacting Sears. The information is factual. We appreciate your positive feedback. Sears regards service to our country as one of greatest sacrifices our young men and women can make. We are happy to do our part to lessen the burden they bear at this time. Bill Thorn Sears Customer Care webcenter@sears.com 1-800-349-4358 Please pass this on to all your friends, Sears needs to be recognized for this outstanding contribution and we need to show them as Americans, we do appreciate what they are doing for our military. ------------------------------------------------

So did the Oatmeal Workers Union send the oatmeal to the troops, or did Quaker Oats? The story implies that it was the company, but it sounds like jaybob is taking credit on behalf of the union.

I've been sending oatmeal and gatorade to my buddy in Iraq. He said the oatmeal is a good change of pace. I wonder if Little Debbie, or Hostess will ante up and do the same? I like it when companies (wether at the employee level, or at the executive level) send their product to our brothers and sisters over there. I wish there was an all inclusive list of who donated products.
