Spirit of Giving....

In the spirit of the holidays, we had a successful Care Package program helping our soldiers overseas. This year, we partnered with Hugs for Soldiers, who will send them through the military from Duluth, GA., to our overseas servicemen and women far away from home during the holidays.

Thank you to all our volunteers for participating and writing 349 individual holiday cards, donating hard candy and nuts in 100 separate packages, and donating money to purchase additional care package requests and the postage to get everything to Hugs for Soldiers by 11/22/23. The Eugene Elementary School in Wheeling kindergarteners also created 120 hand-colored cards to thank the service personnel. We were blessed by an outstanding donation from an angel donor, Michael M., through the Jenner family of 100 pairs of Bomba socks for our platoon package. WOW!
