Christmas Cards

Thanks to the generosity of area residents almost 1000 Christmas cards were mailed to the three units SUNACRW supports on an ongoing basis.  In addition to the cards three boxes of supplies and goodies were sent to help make the holidays a little brighter for these service men and women.  Thank you to everyone who donated to the cause.

Jolene, our Support Our Troops chair, mails packages to units in Germany, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Christmas Cards for Troops

The SUN Area Council of Republican Women are accepting signed Christmas cards (in bulk) to send to our troops in overseas. Through our Support Our Troops Committee we have adopted troops and regularly send care packages. It has come to our attention that several soldiers do not receive as much as a Christmas Card at Christmas time. If you would like to send Christmas cards, or items to our troops, please contact one of our officers to arrange pick-up by MONDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2009. Thanks for helping to make a soldier’s life merry for the holidays.

 

Care Packages for Our Troops

The SUN Council of Republican Women is collecting supplies for care packages for deployed service men and women.  The Republican Women are sponsoring two units from Pennsylvania.  Cash donations will be accepted as well as food products, such as ramen noodles, energy bars, beef jerky, Slim Jims, pretzels, peanuts, sunflower seeds, hard candy, gum, crackers, dried fruit, and other snack foods. Personal hygiene items, such as cotton swabs, cotton balls, tooth brushes, tooth paste, eye drops, nail clippers, razor blades are needed. Other supplies including sun screen, wipes, zip lock bags, non-lithium batteries, lip balm, pain relievers, moisturizing lotion, medicated foot powder, CDs, DVDs, books, coloring books, and colored pencils will also be accepted. 

Please no chocolate that will melt in the high heat and no liquids.  Anything that might leak, break or make a mess should be double bagged in ziplock bags.  Items should be brought to monthly meetings.  If you wish to donate through one of our members or need to schedule a pickup, email us at sunacrw@yahoo.com.
