Support the Troops!
The Task Force Normandy 3-116th Infantry Battalion said, “With the holidays upon us and the reality that we are separated from our families, this time of year can be difficult for deployed service members. However, your care packages have reminded us that our service and sacrifice has not gone unnoticed.”
America is the land of opportunity and an example of hope and freedom to the rest of the world because our soldiers continue to protect the liberties we hold most dear. It is important to recognize and respect the service of those who keep us safe, which is why Lube-Tech sends care packages to the service men and women that are over-seas and away from their families during the holidays.
Major Minces from the 1-18th Infantry received some of the boxes last year to distribute and he stated, “The packages you all sent are priceless. Hands down the best thing we have going on.”
How to show your support to the soldiers:
Soldier addresses – Email addresses for soldiers serving overseas to firstname.lastname@example.org. Lube-Tech would like to send a care package to them while they are out of the U.S. and away from their families during the holidays. All addresses are requested by November 7.
Write a letter/color or draw pictures – Ask your child to write a letter, color or draw pictures to put in the packages. Maybe you know a teacher that would be willing to do this for a classroom project? Please have the letters/pictures turned in to Kelly Jerde 900 Mendelssohn Ave N Golden Valley, MN 55427. The soldiers have really enjoyed this in the past.
Custom forms – Volunteers are needed to help fill out the custom forms and put them into envelopes. Each form needs to be handwritten and the packages can’t ship without them. Please click HERE and sign up if this is something you can help with. Arrangements will be made to get the forms to you.
Set-up – It takes many volunteers to help make this event a success. Please consider contributing some of your time to help with the preparation work November 3-8. Click HERE for available time slots.
Pack night – A fun night is scheduled for November 9 from 3:30pm – 7:00pm at Lube-Tech 900 Mendelssohn Ave N Golden Valley, MN 55427. Care packages will be put together to bring the soldiers overseas a little holiday cheer. Click HERE to reserve your spot.
Make a donation – Each care package is valued at $56. This includes, shipping, a toiletry bag, military socks, snacks, and games/toys. It is our goal to touch as many soldiers as we can. Please contact Amy Jo Van Culin at email@example.com or 763-417-1360 to discuss sponsorship opportunities and inkind donations. Or you can make an online donation.
