(Note: this is a rescheduled date from 2/7) A combined Troop Care and short board meeting will be Tuesday, February 27, 7pm at Rita Cole’s home, 7602 Bantry Circle, Dallas. We need LOTS OF GOODIES and valentine’s cards for our 40 troop care boxes!! So now is the time to head to Walmart, Costco/Sam's, etc and load up with goodies to pack in these boxes (cheese/crackers, cookies, goldfish, candy, notepads, pens, kleenex, socks, chapstick, lotion, deodorant, shampoo, socks etc.). They also love home baked goodies!! Just get creative and think of what you might like if you were far away from home. (FYI travel size is the best size to pack.). If you bring any liquid toiletries or soap, please wrap or package them in baggies.
We have approximately 40 men and women to receive boxes. So if we all bring at least 10 different items to go in 8-10 boxes we should be able to fill up all the 40 boxes. (Yes, it takes a village)
You can drop off your goodies beforehand at Rita Cole's house (please put your name on your bag of goodies so you can get credit). BUT we also need bodies to help us pack -- so if you can help us pack as well as bring items please that would be awesome! You can receive a second credit if you can take a few boxes to the post office to mail!
Please register above to receive credit for your donation and/or mailing. It really is fun putting theses boxes together and knowing you're doing it for such a good cause.
We also like to include notes from you and students from our schools. So if you are a teacher, or know a teacher that would like to provide notes, please bring them or drop them off prior to this event. All packaging is completed at the meeting and the boxes are mailed out the next day.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Rita Cole at firstname.lastname@example.org
