DALLAS – The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is partnering with Just Born, the maker of Peeps, to hatch up an “eggciting” sweepstakes for a chance to win one of 20 Exchange gift cards worth $1,000.

“The Exchange is excited to partner with Just Born to give away $20,000 to service members and their families,” said the Exchange’s Chief of Staff Col. Tom Ockenfels. “This is just another way the Exchange can say ‘thank you’ to our troops.”

From Feb. 21 through April 20, shoppers worldwide can enter to win the Peeps Just Born sweepstakes by filling out and dropping off an entry form at any Exchange store. Shoppers must be 18 years or older to enter and have a valid driver’s license.
