Stockings For Our Troops
November 11, 2017, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Make this holiday season a memorable one for you, your family, and for our troops! We invite you to gather with us at The Oaks Recreation & Fitness Center on Veteran’s Day to decorate holiday stockings for our troops overseas. We will supply everything needed to decorate a stocking.
DONATIONS NEEDED: We would appreciate donations of fabric, craft items, and old Christmas cards to be used for this event. Donations can be dropped off at the Administration Center at Main Park. We will also be collecting small items to be used as stocking stuffers. Stockings and donated items are then put together and shipped to the troops by “Operation Care Package”. Suggested stocking stuffers include: protein bars, nuts, sunflower seeds, trail mix, gum, hard candy, individual drink mixes, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, razors, toothpaste, etc. A Letter Writing Station will also be available to anyone who would like to write a personal note to be included in your stocking.
We do our best to provide comprehensive, accurate and useful information about events and activities. This information (such as times and locations) is gathered from press releases, websites, signs around town and word of mouth.
