Sunday evening, 11:15. Dead on my feet right now, but have to at least let you know: The TFT Care Package Event was a HUGE success.
We worried, that we'd not have enough to fill our boxes. We might have to shop, on Monday, we thought, to pick up the slack, and make sure we mailed something to everyone.
The event started at 4:00.
Donations began rolling in around 2:30.
People began showing up around 3:30.
By 4:30, it was standing room only.
By 5:30, we'd packed twice what we needed. TWO boxes for every soldier, kids. And leftovers enough to fill 1/2 a trailer.
So today was filled with filling out more customs forms, creating another set of address labels, sorting through leftovers, brainstorming for the Christmas event, updating mailing addresses, and making sure every letter got packed and on it's way.
Details and a photo gallery to come.
And I hope this doesn't get old:
