HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY PACKAGES HAVE BEEN MAILED AND HERE SOME EXAMPLES thanks to Klymit and ICEtrekers, Mary Kay gift bags for two lady soldiers and 6 team leaders thanks to Carol Walden, letters for 150 soldiers from West Jordan school, Valentine's candies, cards, treats we bought, and more.
Here are examples of great things companies have come up with on their own:
"Letters to Soldiers, My name is Ann and I work for Sportsman's Warehouse. We have some DVDs people have bought to donate to the Troops. Most of the customers have also attached messages to the DVDs as well. I would love to drop these off.... Thanks so much!" We also received some with chocolate covered raisins from Provo, UT Sportman's Warehouse we included in the care packages.
"We've got more comic books than you asked for, and they are ready for pick up. Two locations: Dr Voltz Comics 2043 East 3300 South. Black Cat Comics 2261 Highland Drive (across parking lot from Cinemark Theatres). The geekshowpodcast.com listeners were more than happy to help. Wish the soldiers happy holidays from us all.Oxoxox Kerry Jackson
