Opportunity to help Returning Soldiers from Deployment!

I am just going to copy and paste this, I wrote this email just a few moments ago. I'm sure that some of you that read here also got the email but I just really want to get this out there and hopefully we'll get a great response...PLEASE share this with your family and friends as well we never know who's out that that wants to help and doesn't know quite how!

 

Hi I'm sending this out to many of you in hopes that you'll find it in your heart to give to our unit's single soldiers. We have I believe it's 80 some single soldiers just in our company, we are planning currently to supply new sheets, pillows, and little goody basket, and personal hygiene items for them for their first night back.
 
If you're interested in helping welcome home the Headquarters Company of 54 Engineer Bn single soldiers home, please respond to me. We're accepting sheets, pillows, checks, & personal hygiene items. We know it's probably easier to just write a check which I can let you know who to make the check out to. We will happily take pictures of the soldiers rooms.
 
Our soldiers will be home the last 2 weeks of October! We are definitely excited, and we're down to aprox. 8 weeks until they come home. I hope you'll find it in your heart to help us wives out as we try to make the first couple nights for the soldiers home as comfortable possible. They do all have sheets, but they've been packed up for a year and will be smelling musty and need to be washed, so it's nice for them to come home and find a nicely made bed and comfortable new pillow to sleep on!
 
Email me: My3gifts@aol.com
 
If you know anyone else who you think would like to help (friends or family) PLEASE share my email address with them and have them email me! If you can not please just be in prayer that we're able to get enough donations so we can do this for our soldiers...the least we can do is give them a set of clean sheets and a pillow to sleep on after sleeping in the desert, on a flimsy mattress about an inch thick, and working every single day for the past year.
 
Thank you and God Bless
Christy....Proud Wife of my Soldier Chad 10 months down...2 to go!

Christy; email me with where I can send a check (lazy, but it is quicker than me going shopping and buying something and this way you guys know better what a guy would want). Wonderful idea you guys are doing. (I can't believe its almost been a year since Chad left; wow, where did the time go??) I know it was hard for you though with him being gone. The end is in sight and that is awesome :)
