Support Our Soldiers Connecticut will be holding an Easter/spring collection event to support our overseas Troops on Sunday, March 11th, from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m., at South Congregational Church, 1301 Forbes Street, East Hartford.
Donations of healthy snacks like nuts and granola bars, sweets (especially “Peeps”), drawings (Schools: please stamp the back of students’ drawings so the troops may write back!) and greetings cards are needed and may be dropped off that day by 1 p.m. or by special arrangement. Also needed is dental supplies.
Volunteers are needed on the day of the event to sort items, pack boxes, and draw letters and cards to send in the boxes. This is a perfect event for all ages!
It costs about $500 to ship the packages, and the group also welcomes 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.
