Lake Havasu City, AZ— Lake Havasu City, AZ—Saturday, November 1, 2014 is the second and final appearance of Lake Havasu City Military Moms at several local stores to accept donations of items for care packages for Havasu troops who are deployed over Christmas.
Christmas holidays away from your military loved ones are difficult for those at home, but especially difficult for the deployed serviceman or woman. Receiving Christmas care packages gives them a little bit of home and reminds them that we at home are thinking of them.
Military Moms will have tables and collection boxes set up outside several stores on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to encourage shoppers to purchase a few extra items for the troops and drop them in the boxes on their way out of the store. Watch for the Military Moms tables outside Walmart, Walgreen’s, Kmart, and Smith’s. Christmas cards will also be available at the tables for you to write a message to the troops.
Each collection box has a list of suggested items to donate, such as toiletries, socks, instant coffee, tea mixes, candy, canned fruit, chapstick, and more. Especially appreciated by our military are pre-paid phone cards so they can call home. See the complete list at the donation boxes for more suggestions.
We are short on two important items and especially request donations of jerky and socks.
Collection boxes are also set up in the following stores through November 14: Born’s Best Sandwiches (Smith’s Center), Havasu Phone Book (across from Albertson’s), Midwest Internal Medicine (1840 Mesquite Ave.), and Chico’s Tacos (in the Ross/Dollar Tree Center).
If you have a child serving, or know a servicememter who will be deployed through Christmas and you would like him or her to receive a Christmas Care Package from the Military Moms, please contact Judy Lacey at 928-855-8470), or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org with the soldier’s name, rank, and full address, including APO or FPO.
