 Support Our Troops Cookie Collection-December 4, 2022
 
Cookies will be collected from noon to 1 p.m. Packing should be completed by 3:00 p.m. This event is basically a 'cookie exchange,' except all the cookies are sent to Soldiers stationed around the world who are away from home for the Holidays.

The group is looking for donations of homemade or store bought cookies.  Special Note: If making cookies you must pack carefully and place in zip lock bags with a slip of paper with your name and contact info.  Please only 4 or 5 wrapped cookies per bag.  No store brand cookies please--go for the good stuff like Oreos. 

A popular item is Christmas, New Years and winter theme drawings. Volunteers are needed, starting at noon, to sort donations and pack the boxes. We are running low on names and addresses of Soldiers stationed overseas so if you know one please let me know.  Also, postage for this event is about $1000 and donations are needed to cover that and checks can be made out to SOS-Connecticut and mailed to SOS-CT c/o Frank Forrest, 165 Maple Street, East Hartford, CT 06118.

This is a great event to support our Troops stationed away from home for the Holidays. Organizations that are interested in helping, please contact us.
