We kindly request that you contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org before sending any goods.
The letters and emails that we received from these soldiers after they received a "taste of home" reminded us as to why we continue with our mission. I have posted a few of the many for your reading.
The article also brought us many new local friends and supporters.
Wells Fargo Foothills took us on as their community service project and hosted a "packing party" for us in July. With their generous donations for goods and shipping, and the assistance of our team members, we were able to pack and send over 55 boxes to 3 different platoons. After having so much fun, they have chosen to host another packing party in November in time for the holiday season. Thank you Well Fargo Foothills!!!
Another donor made a generous donation to our cause that will allow us a great start heading into the holidays. We are currently supporting 10 different platoons with a reach to as many as 2000 soldiers in the more remote locations. These packages this holiday season will be extremely important to many soldiers as they will serve as a reminder of a second holiday season away from family and loved ones for those soldiers. Giving them something special and letting them know they are not forgotten is our goal. We are asking your assistance in achieving that goal.
Thanks and happy fall!
