42 Care Packages Have Our Name On Them

Support the Troops Care PackagesWell, figuratively speaking.  Folks who passed by the Boulder City Social booth at Spring Jamboree last weekend saw an open care package destined for our troops in Afghanistan…right beside a donation jar to help collect the postage needed to get them delivered.

I’m excited to report that we rung up $182.49 in donations between Saturday and Sunday — which will cover the cost of sending 42 boxes on their way this next week.  Yay!

Let’s send a few props out to some folks for helping Stanna with her project…Police Chief Finn made a donation that sent 54 boxes overseas and word on the street is that the Boulder City Sunrise Rotary not only went shopping for box contents from the wish list – they made a club project of packing up the boxes and getting them shipped out.  Nice job, Sunrise!

Stanna gave me a list of other businesses and people that she wanted to give a thank you and recognition to, so here they are for ya…feel free to thank them when you’re next in there!
