Through HonorBoundTV, Great Harvest Bread Co. in Old Saybrook sends packages of fresh bread on expedited journeys to Afghanistan to provide soldiers with a taste of home.
Bakery owner Donna McNeill was introduced to the idea by Raymond Bechard, whose latest project is a television series entitled "Honor Bound."
The Old Saybrook Great Harvest bakery is located at 535 Boston Post Road and is open 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday; 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday; and 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, visit www.OldSaybrook.GreatHarvestBread.com.
