8th Annual Project Holiday -Delray Beach and Boca Raton- Gifts for Our Troops! November 8-December 6, 2013!
We’re approaching the time of year when families and friends come together to celebrate the holidays, but as you know, there are many serving our country who will not be with their loved ones.
Project Holiday has become as much a gift to our community as it is to our military personnel. Giving to others is the best way to capture the spirit of the holiday. Through this effort, much needed items will be collected and sent to our troops to let them know they are not forgotten and that we appreciate what they do.
Donations will be accepted between November 8 through December 6, 2013.
What-Note-travel-sized items are preferred!
Items such as
*Holiday Decorations (all denominations)
*Thermoguard (heating pads)
*Individually wrapped hard candy
*Chocolate- please.. no chocolate unless Tootsie rolls, charm pops, … things that will not melt.
