Volunteers will still keep packing from their homes. Donated items can be dropped off at OCSC Tue – Sat 9 – 4pm.
We have a Michigan Unit in Syria. They are asking for stuff like liquid IV or drip drop, canned food, or dried fruit, jerky, and snack items. they need pepto (many who get sick have no access to a PX)
If anyone would like to send this unit a box please contact me: Louise@TheDesertAngel.org

“And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you–ask what you can do for your country.
My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.
Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us here the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God’s work must truly be our own.” – President John F. Kennedy
Message from the wife of a Michigan soldier:
“I wanted to let you know we truly appreciate everything you did for the 156 ESB by sending care packages. My husband will be home this week, and hopes to surprise our kids
Monday at school in Linden, Mi.”
