United For The Troops thanks you all for your support over the past five years. On Saturday over 150 members of our community joined forces to put together and pack 300 gift box’s to be sent to our men and women serving our country.This brings the total to over 7000.
Young and not so young worked tirelessly until every donated item found its way into one of our boxs, than sealed and addressed with a soldiers name, a number of which were from our own community.
We also had a call from one of our soldiers we were packing for, JJ Lavery who called his parents from Afghanistan while they were with us packing.
We also want to thank those who contacted UFT asking to help with Hurricane Sandy Suffers. UFT joined the effort with a number of groups and as a result were able to feed hot meals to over 1000 men women and children, bring them clean warm clothes, blankets, diapers, cleaning supplies and many helped with repair and cleaning efforts.
Please keep in touch with us and follow our website at http://unitedforthetroops.org/ We also are on Facebook. Thank you all.
