Books for Soldiers

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Jeff Fillmore, Oct 5, 2008.

  1. Just wanted to tell everyone about a great program called Books for Soldiers that I got to participate with through a drive at my office. Their goal is to facilitate providing soldiers on overseas assignment with 'care packages' of the little things we take for granted- such as books, movies, personal items, etc. and fill a USPS Flat Rate Box ($11 shipped anywhere regardless of weight) I sat down with my daughters today and explained the program and we came up with all kinds if items they thought the soldiers could use- they each filled up a box (after a trip to Wal-Mart with Dad!) :wink: They also put in some of their small toys which the program says soldiers like to give away to local children where they are serving.

    Regardless of political views I think most folks agree the soldiers serving in harms way could use a little love from home. It is certainly a worthy cause when a small effort on our part can brighten someones day over there.

    HERE is a link to the Books for Soldiers website.
     
  2. And HERE is a list of items they suggest for the care packages- it gives you an idea of what kind of little things they need.
