OPERATION SHOEBOX

I live in Monaco Gardens in Carrollwood Village and my neighbor, Jo Ann decided to help our troops with Operation Shoebox.  Every last Saturday of the Month, we collect donations between 4-6pm.  We also welcome monetary donations to help with the cost of postage.  Last month was our first collection and we received 5 boxes that were mailed to the soldiers, and we received a wonderful response thanking us for we had a letter indicating the items were from Monaco Gardens.  Here is the e-mail:

Dear Mrs Burkhardt,

  On behalf of myself and my fellow soldiers, I would like to express my thanks to you for giving us one of the better days we've had since arriving in Iraq. We recieved your packages yesterday and it was like Christmas had come early. Your boxes contained a little something for everyone and and put a smile on everyone's face. We appreciate the time and effort you so obviously put into taking care of us.

Our heartfelt gratitude,

SSG Teas

On behalf of the 15th SB Maintenance Management Office.

Hey, Sharon - Just stopping by to see if you've been posting to your blog. Don't neglect that powerful love affair between Google, ActiveRain, and your blog.
