Linda Childs, Project Chair for Operation Christmas, held a workshop at Crofton Library where members filled boxes with goodies to be shipped overseas to Afghanistan.
This year we are celebrating a very special Operation Christmas initiative. Member C.J. Salisbury’s son-in-law is stationed in Afghanistan, along with 21 others in his Unit. They are attached to an Air Force Unit consisting of 30 personnel, so a total of 51 soldiers will receive goodies for the holidays.
Thank you to CVGC members who gave so generously, to BJ's, Giant Food, and Wegmans for their generous donations, to Outback Steakhouse who donated gift cards for free appetizers and to Mission BBQ who donated koozies and gift cards and shipped BBQ sauce to the Unit.
Thank you to Rick Childs and Palmer Salisbury for taking the boxes to UPS and to Linda for her time and effort in obtaining donations and purchasing the items for this meaningful project.
