The post office picked up 170 of our shipping cartons immediately after the packing party. The remaining cartons will be shipped to our soldiers overseas in the next few weeks.
Our special thanks to Sgt. Schumpert and the six Army recruits who worked so hard at the packing party. And thanks to The Marketing Arm for use of their warehouse.
Our next big packing party is April 28 with a "Texas" theme. Some of the specific items we are trying to gather include chips, salsa, Texas-themed items (including pro or college teams), pop top cans of jalapenos, microwaveable queso, bluebonnet seeds, snacks and toiletries.
Below are some photos of our packing party. Thanks to all who volunteered.

... It is so amazing. People continually come to my office or to their Command tents to pick up items that we've presented. It has been such a help because we have such a small PX and so very little access to toiletries and snacks. It's been a great help to us! The packages have made a huge difference for the Soldiers that I serve.
Thank you so much,
