Operation Sunscreen Comes to Chatham Fishawack Festival on June 10


Mary Kay consultants are teaming up again this year with local residents and businesses to raise over $43,000 in sunscreen to send our troops serving overseas. Sun-care products are in high demand for the troops who spend countless hours in the sun without sun protection.

Operation Jersey Cares, a non profit organization that provides care packages to our military who serve overseas and around the world, coordinates the distribution of the sunscreen.  (

"We are so grateful for the local support by Chatham residents and businesses who have contributed to this campaign and for the volunteers of Operation Jersey Cares who help our troops every day," Mary McNiff, sales consultant with Mary Kay, said.

This is our third year running the campaign which kicks off in May, in honor of Military Appreciation Month and wraps up June 30th. Consultants match all purchases and donations.  Our goal is to send $43,000 in Mary Kay Sunscreen to our troops. The first wave of sunscreen will be dropped off at Operation Jersey Cares mid June.
