Support our Troops Cookie Collection

Description: Support our Troops cookie collection!
Support Our Soldiers/SOS-Connecticut is sponsoring a “Support our Troops” cookie collection and packing event, Sunday, December 2, 2018, at South Congregational Church, 1301 Forbes Street, East Hartford. 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 stations around the world away from home for the Holidays. The group is looking for donations of homemade or store bought cookies as well as 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 contact us. Also postage for this event is about $1,000 and donations are needed to cover that and checks can be made out to SOS Connecticut and mailed to SOSCT 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 and organizations that are interested in helping, please contact us. For more information, to donate merchandise in advance of the event, or to volunteer, call Frank Forrest at 860-690-2845 - sosconnecticut@aol.com
