Pro Camp at Ft. Campbell

Eleven military communities have been chosen to host the 2017 football ProCamps events for boys and girls.
Winning installations qualified for a camp based on purchases of select items, like Tide, Bounty, Charmin, Head & Shoulders and Old Spice in their local commissaries from March through April. The two-day events are sponsored by Procter and Gamble in partnership with the Defense Commissary Agency and are open for first through eighth grade youth of active duty military, reservists, retirees, and DOD civilian employees.
This years 11 ProCamps sites are as follows: Little Rock Air Force Base, Arkansas; Fort Drum, New York; Randolph Air Force Base, Texas; Robins Air Force Base, Georgia; Keesler Air Force Base, Mississippi; Naval Base San Diego, California; Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma; Fort Campbell, Kentucky; Naval Support Activity Mid-South (Memphis), Tennessee; Hickam Air Force Base, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii; and Langley Air Force Base, Virginia.
We are so excited to announce this years ProCamps locations, said Sallie Cauthers, DeCAs marketing and mass media specialist. Our communities, especially the children, benefit from our partnership with industry that brings these football stars to their installations. At the same time, our commissary patrons save significantly on quality products versus what theyd have to pay outside the gate.
This marks the fifth year P&G has partnered with the commissary to run the NFL Military ProCamps program at installations worldwide, said Molly Fanning of ProCamps. We are so excited to continue to grow the program with top NFL athletes.
ProCamps manages and operates sports camps around the world led by professional athletes. This year theyve already conducted camps overseas for military children in the Kaiserslautern Military Community (Germany). At the end of July they will run a camp in the Far East at Camp Humphreys in South Korea.
These camps teach the fundamentals of football, teamwork and how to make new friends, Fanning said. By the end of summer we will have executed more than 50 camps for military youth. We are excited to continue to support military families through this program.
For more information about the camps being held at selected sites, contact your local youth sports office or visit your commissary for camp details.

War on Hunger

It takes an army to win a war. Thats the mindset of the Defense Commissary Agencys employees and patrons as they enlist to fight against hunger.
Since 2010, federal agencies have supported the annual Feds Feed Families campaign as a way to help food banks and pantries around the country stay stocked during the summer months  when the need increases and the donations decrease. From June 1 through Aug. 31, DeCA employees and patrons at over 150 commissary collection points are taking part by donating nonperishable items and personal hygiene products.
This serves the communities around the commissaries, said Randy Eller, DeCAs Feds Feed Families manager. Our patrons and employees show by their participation how much they value their communities. These donations are just one of the ways they help.
Last year, DeCA donated 1.1 million pounds of needed items. The agencys total was 33 percent of DODs entire donation.
In 2016, the nationwide campaign collected over 12.5 million pounds for local food banks and pantries. As of last year the food drive has taken in 69.8 million pounds.
Some commissaries will have prepackaged donation bags available for purchase with donation drop-off locations set up throughout the store. Customers can either purchase a prepackaged bag, select items while shopping or bring items from home as donations.
The most-needed items for donations include:
" Canned vegetables  low sodium, no salt
" Canned fruits  in light syrup or its own juices
" Canned proteins  tuna, salmon, chicken, peanut butter and beans
" Soups  beef stew, chili, chicken noodle, turkey or rice
" Condiments  tomato-based sauces, light soy sauce, ketchup, mustard, salad dressing or oils
" Snacks  individually packed snacks, crackers, trail mix, dried fruit, granola and cereal bars, pretzels and sandwich crackers
" Multigrain cereal
" 100 percent juice  all sizes, including juice boxes
" Grains  brown and white rice, oatmeal, bulgar, quinoa, couscous, pasta, and macaroni and cheese
" Paper products and household items  paper towels, napkins, cleaning supplies
" Hygiene items  diapers, deodorants (men and women), feminine products, toilet paper, tissues, soap, toothpaste and shampoo
The agency is looking forward to another successful campaign for this year, said Eller. Over 150 commissaries are participating by offering our customers, employees and industry partners a chance to donate to this worthy cause.

Commissary Brands

Commissary brands are arriving on store shelves
Commissary brands are starting to arrive on store shelves, ushering the Defense Commissary Agency into a new era of patron savings, said DeCA Director and CEO Joseph H. Jeu. We are excited to finally begin offering commissary brands, Jeu said. An overwhelming number of our patrons said they would purchase store brands if we had them. Well that time is here. Commissaries in the United States are starting to see an initial roll out of commissary brand products like bottled water. Plastic bags and paper products will arrive later in June. Stores in overseas areas are expected to see commissary brand items in the September timeframe. Commissary brand products will be equal or lower in price to commercial grocery store brands. This means they will also definitely cost less than regular national brands, Jeu said. These products will give our patrons the quality they expect and the savings they deserve. DeCAs commissary brand will be sold under two names: Freedoms Choice for food items and HomeBase for nonfood items such as paper products and other household items.

Deep discounts, big events for commissaries in June
