The packages arrived to one of the destinations yesterday: Fort Bliss, Texas. The soldiers there are in the middle of their 21 day quarantine after serving in Liberia. As you can see by the pictures, they were thrilled to receive the treats and letters sent by Maple families. In all, we sent 19 care packages last Thursday. Nine packages full of candy and letters went to Ft Bliss and the other packages are still on their way to service members working right now in Liberia.
On another note, I took a trip to the White Center Food Bank yesterday to deliver the canned goods and large boxes of cereal donated. One hundred pounds. I am astounded each year by both the generosity shown by our community and the gratitude shown by those on the receiving end.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
Thank you so much for this great surprise from you and the children of Maple Elementary.
It was so nice to see the Soldiers, Sailors, Airman and Marines read all the notes from the kids. All of us are very appreciative of the thoughts and act of kindness you and the kids did for us.
I was in awe that the team went for the letters just as much as the candy and other items. We posted the letters on the wall for all of us to read in the common area.
The pictures were sent earlier from my roommate. We will send more.
Thanks so much for letting me have the opportunity to talk with your kids via face time. It made my day! I hope they were able to learn more about what we are doing in Liberia.
You are a superstar for teaching the kids about this topic and providing them the awareness of such an important issue.
Every point counts to ensure we keep this virus away from the US and help the people that are sick in Liberia.
If there is anything we can do again please let me know.
