About $2,000 in cash donations were also collected, which will be a big help with our postage costs for mailing care packages to Afghanistan, Iraq, Mideast, and other remote areas where U.S. military troops serve overseas.
We thank Kroger and Market Street for the use of their facilities. Many customers thanked us for giving them a way to support the troops on Memorial Day weekend.
A huge thanks goes out to Natalie and the new Frisco Legacy National Charity League chapter, who provided about 32 hard working volunteers for the collection drive. Amazing response, thanks! Levi Strauss and the National Charity League Preston Bluebonnet chapter also sent great groups of volunteers to help us collect goods for our care packages. To everyone who helped, thanks!!!
