Houston County Courier - August 2008
I assist the American Legion Auxiliary pack boxes to ship to our troops serving in Iraq.
Thirteen of these people are from the Houston County area.
Contributions have slacked off and fewer boxes have been shipped this year than in 2007.
Donations of cash and other travel size products and pocket sized durable snacks are needed so that boxes can be packed on Aug. 13 for our troops.
Our soldiers look forward to receiving these boxes. Please help me and the American Legion Auxiliary support our troops.
In addition to cash for shipping expenses and the purchase of items the following travel sized items are desperately needed: dental floss, eye wash, toothpaste, mouthwash, Wet Ones (15 pkg), hand sanitizers, Q Tips (box of 30 per package) and small Febreze.
Cash donations can be sent to: American Legion Auxiliary Post #134, Care and Share Program, P. O. Box 43, Crockett, TX 75835, Attention: Donnita Patrick.
If you prefer to drop off items you can call 546-7114.
Thank you for your support of our troops and all that do to keep our country safe.
