We will continue to support our troops by “Passing the Hat” at our meetings for financial donations to be given to Si Tenenberg in support of his Troop Care Packages. Si buys, packs and delivers care packages to our men and women serving in the armed forces in Afghanistan. Almost 12,000 care packages have been delivered, mostly to troops located at forward and combat outposts embedded with the local military. These packages are uplifting, needed and very much appreciated by our troops.
Our Caring for America program was established on the belief that problems can be solved most effectively through the generosity and combined energies of individual citizens. It is through this that we as a club and committee have chosen to support two important needs in our community.
Thank you for continuing to help us Care for America and our community.

Angel Tree Program
Our newest project will be in support of the Salvation Army and their Christmas Angel Tree program. The Angel Tree program is a holiday program designed to raise in-kind gifts to assist families who are in crisis as a result of medical issues, unemployment, homelessness, or other difficult circumstances and who otherwise wouldn't have the resources to celebrate Christmas. As the Holidays draw closer, Angel Tags will decorate a Christmas Tree at a Fall meeting. The tags will have a child’s name with their Christmas wishes. Members will be encouraged to select a tag and fulfill a wish (or two….).
