Community Service Grant - Operation America Cares.
Joe Giamanco presented Linda Millimaki of Operation America Cares with a Community Grant check. The organization sends approximately 150 care packages a month to deployed troops. Our grant will help pay for the boxes and postage, which cost the group $16.75 for each box. The entire Operation America Cares operation is run from home, with a small storage facility used locally for storing donated and purchased items waiting to be packed. The boxes are packed with things you wouldn't imagine our troops need - but they do! Chapstick; toilet paper and other toiletries like shaving cream and toothpaste; socks; books and magazines.
