We made neck coolers for the soldiers today at the Allatoona Guild. We have made them each year for several years now and each time we hope that it will be the last time that the need is there.
We ended up with over 120 neck coolers ready to send to Iraq or Afghanistan. We will check at the meeting to see if one of the members has a contact person over there. We have sent them directly to a soldier for the last 3 years but if we don’t have a name, there are several organizations who will willingly take them and distribute them for us.
It is good working together to do something like this. It makes us feel good about the opportunity to show our support of the troops and feel like we are making a difference. It is always one of the most attended community service days during the year.
