Military Care Package Project- Burlington
September 16 @ 8:00 am - November 2 @ 5:00 pm
Friends of Coffey Health System is holding their 10th annual Military Care Package Project. These care packages will be sent to our local troops stationed overseas, including canine units. Everyday items such as toiletry/hygiene items; snacks; playing cards; crossword/Sudoku books; gently-used magazines, cd’s & books; and leftover Halloween Candy are greatly appreciated by service men and women deployed overseas.
Collection boxes are placed in the Coffey County Hospital gift shop, Hoover’s Thriftway, Shopko, and the Coffey County Register of Deeds Office. Schools, 4-H groups, American Legions, and other civic groups are also involved in the collection process. The volunteers will collect items until November 2. Monetary donations are also accepted to help cover the cost of shipping the care packages and can be made at the hospital gift shop.
Friends of Coffey Health System will have tables set up at Hoover’s Thriftway on October 6th and 20th.
If you know of someone who should receive one of these care packages, call the project coordinator Linda Booth at (620) 364-8015 or the hospital gift shop at 364-2121 Ext. 4267.
