Iím pleased to announce Iím partnering with ĎAdopt-A-Battalion,í a 100% volunteer based organization that operates year round to collect goods and monetary donations for our servicemen and women stationed overseas. Iíve teamed up with several VFWs and American Legion Posts in my district where goods can be dropped off to support this wonderful cause.
From now until Veterans Day (November 11th), several locations (listed below) will be collecting hygiene items, snack and recreational items (such as shampoo, razors, deodorant, shaving cream, toothbrushes, cookies, crackers, gum, envelopes, note cards, pens and more) to send in care packages overseas to our troops. Basic goods such as toiletries, food, reading material and other personal items which are not provided by our government are always a welcome comfort to those away from home.
By collecting and providing basic necessities and comforts from home, and sending them to our active duty military members, weíre showing our support and gratitude for their service. I urge anyone to donate hygiene items, snacks or recreational items and itís easy to do so. Just visit one of the participating VFW/American Legion Posts!
