SUPPORT OUR SOLDIERS-CONNECTICUT
COLLECTION FOR OVERSEAS TROOPS
MARCH 27, 2022

Support Our Soldiers/SoS-Connecticut is sponsoring a "Support our Troops” Easter/Spring collection and packing event. This event will happen on Sunday, March 27, 2022 at the Hillstown Grange Hall, 617 Hills Street, East Hartford, CT. We start packing at noon and should be finished by 2 PM.

Donations of snacks, sweets (especially "Peeps”), drawings and greetings cards are needed and may be dropped off that day by 1 p.m. or by special arrangement.  Always needed are dental supplies. We already have a large donation of Girl Scout Cookies. Volunteers are needed on the day of the event to sort items, pack boxes, and draw letters and cards to add to the boxes. This is a perfect event for all ages!

It costs about $900 to ship the packages, and we need donations to help defray postage costs. Checks should be made out to SOS Connecticut and mailed to:
          SOS Connecticut, c/o Frank Forrest
          165 Maple Street
          East Hartford, CT 06118.

For more information or to volunteer, call Frank Forrest at 860-690-2845, or email:
