Support Our Soldiers!
Here's a sample list of items they need or can’t get easily.
The average age of an
US Soldier is 19 years old!
Start writing those cards and letters & gathering up cool stuff to
send. As a club we should be
able to really spoil our soldier
with multiple letters every week
and a care package every two
weeks. Bring your cards and letters to every phlocking, trip to
the Nav-A-Gator, or wherever
you might find a board member
and we will get them mailed.
Remember everything in travel or single serving sizes.
Shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, lotion, sunscreen, lip balm, deodorant,
q-tips, tooth paste, tooth brush, mouth wash, tampons, Kleenex, comb,
brush, baby wipes, hair spray, razors and blades, sewing kits, tweezers,
ultra healing hand cream, water guns, battery powered fans, batteries, playing cards, magazines, books, CD's, videos and AT&T phone cards. Anything
else shippable & fun. Now for anything a teenager would like to eat because
the average age of soldiers is 19 years old. I've got Buffett shirts older than
that! Just remember it's REALLY HOT so no chocolate.
Canned fruit snack packs, protein and breakfast bars, single serving packs of
cookies, chips, trail mix, nuts, crackers, gum, beef jerky, energy drinks,
single pack crystal light and other flavorings for bottled water, tang and anything else that sounds like someone in the armpit of the world would love
to have. Crystal light and other flavorings for bottled water, tang and anything else that sounds good.
Our love and caring can make a difference in these young people's lives.
Maybe by bringing a bit of fun and laughter to their lives while in those war
ravaged places will make the time past quicker and keep them a bit saner.
I would like the club to consider supporting The Wounded Warrior Project as well as Soldier’s Angels. We can
commit as little as $19 per month to The Wounded Warrior Project and make a difference in a soldier’s life.
HONOR THEIR SACRIFICE
SUPPORT A WOUNDED WARRIOR TODAY
MISSION: The mission of Wounded Warrior Project® is to honor and empower wounded warriors.
PURPOSE: To raise awareness and to enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.
HISTORY: Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) began when several veterans and friends, moved by stories of the first wounded
service members returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq, took action to help others in need. What started as a program to
provide comfort items to wounded service members has grown into a complete rehabilitative effort to assist warriors as they
recover and transition back to civilian life. Thousands of wounded warriors and caregivers receive support each year through
WWP programs designed to nurture the mind and body, and encourage economic empowerment.
Wounded Warrior Project® is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization.
For more information on WWP, visit woundedwarriorproject.org.
