Donate to Treats for Troops, get free chocolate fondue at The Melting Pot

"Treats for Troops has been collecting supplies for members of the military since 2007," said Karin King, founder of Treats for Troops. "Donations drop extremely low during the summer months and we appreciate The Melting Pot bringing awareness to the needs of the members of our front lines."

Melting Pot Restaurants in Tampa, Oldsmar, St. Petersburg and Sarasota will be participating in this promotion, with the donations being shipped to military bases located in Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea, Africa and numerous other countries as well as navy ships.

In honor of the recent Memorial Day holiday and the upcoming Fourth of July holiday, The Melting Pot has teamed up with Treats for Troops to honor (and treat) the men and women who serve our country.

From May 29th until July 3rd, when guests bring in a gallon-sized bag filled with items to be donated to the armed forces troops — ranging from personal hygiene products to snacks and candy — and a dollar bill (for shipping costs), they'll receive a free chocolate fondue dessert.
