Through June 15th we are collecting new or good-condition, adult-size baseball gloves to fulfill a request by a group of Marines in Afghanistan. It really helps them pass the time. So much of a military deployment is "hurry up....and wait" and the waiting is the toughest part for many Marines. The request simply states “Baseballs gloves (one or two left handed ones as well as many right handed ones.)” We hope fill a box with gloves for these Marines at our big packing event on May 23rd , but will continue the collection throughl June 15th.
Donations can be put in the Support Our Troops barrell in the lobby of the Franklin Public Library, 9151W Loomis Rd, Franklin WI
Games for XBox 360, PS2, & PS3 are highly prized by the troops also so if any one has games they are willing to donate the troops would love them! This is another popular way to pass time as they "hurry up and......... wait".
The Support Our Troops volunteers who meet at the Franklin Public Library work in cooperation with the Books for Soldiers organization to boost the morale of deployed US Service members by supplying items they have requested at www.booksforsoldiers.com
