Support the Troops
Come join the Fremont Rotary Club Tuesday evening, Oct 3rd and help us put together care packages for our Overseas Troops.
5:30pm - until we are done;
At the Ballard VFW Hall (Veterans of Foreign Wars) -
2812 NW Market St
This is a project of The Fremont Rotary Club partnering with donations from Safeway and VFW. These packages are for an army unit serving in Xiphous, Jordan. Using their wish lists we will send many small daily comfort items, razors, chips, coffee fixings, toothpaste, that we here Stateside generally take for granted. What’s even worse than serving “hard duty” is feeling that you are forgotten. Come join us. It will be a fun evening of “light duty” packing up the supplies. We will be a mixture of Rotarians, friends of friends, and VFW volunteers. We need your help! You might even scribble a note to put in one of these care packages…. Trust us, your service of a few hours this coming Tuesday evening will make a big impact
