You can see the tears in her eyes as Eastman employee and military mom, Marsha Edwards, talks about her son’s reaction to receiving care packages from Eastman’s Supplies for Soldiers initiative during his first Christmas stationed overseas.
"My son joined the military in 2015, and that first Christmas my son was away, my husband and I felt helpless knowing he would be away from family,” shares Edwards. “We wanted to do something, and that prompted us to join the Supplies for Soldiers team at Eastman. It became therapeutic for us. We felt like we were doing something for him even though we couldn’t be with him during the holidays.”
