Please plan to join us on from 9:30 AM until we are done at the schoolhouse to organize care packages for our soldiers. In WWII, the women of this organization gathered at the schoolhouse to make bandages for the soldiers & here we are all these years later trying to do a little something to make their tours a little more comfortable. We can’t do this project without your support and participation. It is not a political event! It is just our way to show the soldiers we appreciate their many sacrifices. You can help by creating and writing notes in cards, organizing and repackaging the items or filling the boxes with all the goodies you have donated.
As always, Darea will provide sample designs for the cards.
Please bring your donations to the March meeting or drop them off at either of our homes by March 17th or at the schoolhouse on March 20th. The Chantilly Dollar Store, Wal-Mart and Costco have great items and prices!
If you would prefer Sharon K. and I shop for you, please make sure we have your check made payable to Patti C or your cash donation by March 17th.
If you would like us to send a care package to a loved one, please contact Patti at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 17th.
