Service project for Operation American Soldier
Operation American Soldier service project

Operation American Soldier provides support to our troops deployed overseas by sending cheer boxes filled with snacks, toiletries and letters so that no soldier leaves mail call empty handed and feels the support from home.

On January 20 we will have a collection for any of the items on the wish list and we will write letters of support to our troops

On January 27 Wendy Rocca will speak about Operation American Soldier and what it means to our troops
