"You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."
Ronald Reagan

Milestone in Care Packages for Troops

What we are doing is packing boxes with toiletries, foods and snacks, reading and writing materials as well as bug wipes, sunscreen, batteries and other necessities for our troops. Special items are sent for the holidays.

We also include letters from the public and letters and pictures from children.

We shop in between our packing dates and with the help of volunteers move the stored items to the American Legion where we set them up for the following evenings packing. Our devoted volunteers gather to pack boxes for our American Heroes Overseas.

The following day a volunteer brings the boxes to the post office for mailing.

We also care for soldiers who’s families cannot afford to send boxes to their loved ones.
