March 11-30, 2017, the South Regional Montgomery County Library in the Woodlands, Texas, held a drive for us! They asked patrons of the library to donate items from our list to send to our deployed military. Thank you SO much, Montgomery County Library!
On March 25, 2017, we held a Packing Party at The Conservatory Senior Living facility. These events are held to pack donated items into care packages that are headed overseas to our deployed military!
Our March Adopt A Box event at the Alspaugh's Kingwood location was held on March 18, 2017. (Remember that these events are held to solicit support from the community - Alspaugh's customers - to help defray the cost of postage to mail care packages). The Liveable Forest NCL group provided this month's volunteer support! As always, thank you Liveable Forest NCL and Alspaugh's!
Our March Adopt A Box event at the Alspaugh's Woodlands location was held on March 18, 2017. The Montgomery Monarchs NCL group provided this month's volunteer support. Thank you so much, Montgomery Monarchs and Alspaugh's ACE Woodlands!
The Adopt A Box event for Alspaugh's Woodlands location was held on February 18, 2017. The Magnolias NCL group provided the volunteer support! Thank you Alspaugh's and Magnolias NCL!
For Valentine's day, the Class of 2018 from The Magnolias NCL Chapter decided to do a special Valentine collection for female troops down range. They called it "Galentine" and OME helped identify locations where females are present. The girls collected 20 care packages worth of decorative and useful Valentine gifts for these female troops! The boxes were shipped to 4 different locations. These NCLers have a passion for working with OME in our various military-support missons!
The Kingwood location of Alspaugh's ACE Hardware hosted our February Adopt A Box Event on February 11, 2017! Thank you, Alspaugh's, and thank you NCL for providing the volunteer support this month! As you can see, the children of Aspaugh's customers enjoyed drawing pictures on the care package boxes!
We held our first Packing Party for 2017 on February 5, 2017. As always, it was held at The Conservatory Senior Living facility, and the Woodlands NCL Chapter/Class of 2017 provided the awesome volunteer support for this one!
January 21, 2017, was the date for our first Adopt A Box events for 2017 for both our Kingwood and Woodlands locations! Both were very successful at raising funds to help defray the cost of postage for sending care packages to our troops deployed in harm's way! During these AAB events we set up a table in front of the Kingwood and Woodlands locations for Alspaugh's ACE Hardware and we ask their customers to donate money toward this effort. As always, their customers were extremely generous! Here are pictures from the Kingwood location:
