From the weekly Mason E-Files of Nov 19, 2007:
|Mason Military Outreach (MMO) – Care Package Drive|
|Mason Military Outreach (MMO) will be assembling care packages at their monthly meeting scheduled on Mon, Nov 26, from 12:00 noon – 1:00 in SUB II, Rooms 1 & 2. You are invited to drop by with donations and/or to help assemble the care packages. Donations are always welcome; suggestions include dried fruit, trail mix, granola bars, powdered drink mixes, toothbrushes, toothpaste, stationery, DVDs, CDs, AA & AAA batteries, and foot powder. Donations of cash to help with the shipping costs of $8.95 per package are most appreciated. If you would like to have an MMO care package sent to a loved one who is serving in the military, send their name and address to email@example.com.|
I think this is an excellent outreach effort for OLLI. I plan to attend the meeting on Monday and discuss at that time how we can help. I would like to get a volunteer to serve as an OLLI liaison to the Mason Military Outreach committee. If anyone wants to contribute money for postage as indicated above, get a check to me before Monday and I will take it in.
