Harris Teeter Promotes Smiles Over Miles During Donation Card Campaign Benefiting the Troops
Purchase a $1 and $7 Smiles Over Miles donation card in Harris Teeter stores during the month of May to support our service members

Charlotte, NC – Harris Teeter is campaigning now through May 31, 2011 to give military service members or their family members, through USO centers, the opportunity to send secure video messages back home during its Smiles Over Miles donation card campaign.

Smiles Over Miles is powered by Privacy Data Systems and an expansion of an existing USO of North Carolina program that originally brought families of active duty service members to its center to record and mail DVD messages to their loved ones.  Now, thanks to Smiles Over Miles, U.S. service members have an additional, simple way to connect with loved ones by sending voice, text, large file attachments or video messages from anywhere in the world using Smiles Over Miles account cards.

Starting today, Harris Teeter is selling $1and $7 donation cards in each of its stores to raise money to purchase Smiles Over Miles account cards that will be placed at participating USO centers for use by our military men and women.  A $7 donation card represents an account card that enables service members to send and receive unlimited voice, text, large file attachments or video messages for one year using with Smiles Over Miles.

There are nearly 3,000,000 active duty, National Guard and Reserve service members representing the United States both here and abroad.  Harris Teeter is proud to support them during its Smiles Over Miles donation card campaign and encourages its shoppers to join by purchasing a $1 or $7 donation card during the month of May.

USO locations include USO DC Metro serving Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia; USO of Delaware; USO Florida; USO Georgia; USO North Carolina, USO South Carolina, USO Fort Campbell.
