Toys for Troops: Christmas Event
We packed. DVDs & CDs. T-shirts, socks and gloves. Footballs and Flashlights.
Stockings. Candy Canes. Cards & letters.
Community Encouragement. Hugs. Love.
Lifelong friends from high school came. Family came. New friends came. I laughed a lot. I teared up, with a few.
In 2.5 hours, we had gifts and necessities for every soldier on our list, and enough money to send our boxes. We had cookies and cocoa, and then we cleaned up, packed up, and were on our way.

Tomorrow: Post Office, Round 2! Yee-haw!
Thanks, thanks, forever thanks!
P. S. There's still time to participate! If you're interested in sending a gift to a soldier, hit me up, we'll make it happen!
