It is almost time for the 9th Annual Military Care Package Drive!
Please help us send Christmas care packages to our deployed service members. It is a wonderful way to show our appreciation for all they sacrifice for us.
This is a huge team effort! Please help spread the word!
Please come and join us at the packing event, where we will assemble the care packages and disseminate them. The packing event will be held on 10/28, from 6:00-8:00 pm. Location: Westport Clubhouse (1536 Halisport Lake Drive, Kennesaw 30152)
We have a limited supply of gloves and masks. Please bring your own.
Care package donations / needed please: gum, hard candy (nothing that will melt), trail mix, granola bars, Christmas (non-perishable) related cookies or candies, current magazines, beef jerky, individual powdered drink mixes (Gatorade for example), dental products, travel sized wet wipes, small travel games, small footballs, playing cards, books, all toiletries (male and female), deodorant (no aerosols please) lip balm, sunscreen (lotion only), Sudoku, Crosswords, Brainteasers, etc.
The donation drop off points are: our office, PearTree Home Florist Gifts in Powder Springs, Aqua-Tots Swim Schools in Kennesaw, The School Box, Inc. in Kennesaw, The School Box in Northlake, The School Box in Southlake AND we will also coordinate with you to pick up your donations.
Thank you cards and handwritten notes to the deployed service members are always needed. This is a great project for schools (art classes as an example), Sunday Schools or Scouts.
Individuals, families, or businesses will mail out the pre-packaged care packages. You will be mailing the packages to our deployed service members. It costs roughly $15.00 to mail one care package. We will provide you cash to mail, addresses and custom forms. We only ask that you mail the care package/s by mid NOV. You can take one package or as many as you would like.
In support of our annual Military Care Package drive, we will also need financial donations to mail the boxes to the deployed service members. Please call or email me, if you are interested in making a financial donation for the shipping costs. Melissa@ThinkMelissa.com or 770-310-3269.
How you can help: donate items, mail a few packages, donate money to mail the care packages, volunteer your time to build the packages, spread the word, get your school, Scouts, Churches, and other organizations involved in collecting donations or creating handwritten notes / cards.
All donated care package items and cash donations are needed by 10/26 please.
Volunteers (children and adults) are needed to organize the donations and assemble the packages on 10/28 please.
Thank you so much for your consideration!
