The volunteer board says it all, with pictures of soldiers deployed, letters home from these brave warriors and wish list handouts so folks can find out what goodies to buy.
A stack of goodies were collected in February 2008 and will soon be on their way to our troops and to Iraqi children overseas.
Magazines can help our troops while away the time in between missions or when they have a chance to rest. Peeps are always an Easter favorite!

Thanks to the MetLife Associates in Westport, CT, for their dedication and generosity towards our troops. This past February, a crew of volunteers collected:
- 50 lbs of foodstuff - treats and snacks, candy and gum, about 20 lbs of dog biscuits, and 30+ lbs of personal care items and first aid supplies for the troops. Also included were a large box of magazines, 2 CD players, several CDs and DVDs, batteries, office and party supplies, and one big box of games and toys, a multitude of new white socks and some monetary contributions, too.
These items will be on their way shortly and should arrive in time for the Easter holiday. Thanks MetLife Westport. Way to go!
