The Heart of Texas Regional Today's Girl Youth Development Program will continue to accept donations through October 10th for their community service project. The girls will have a booth at the Pecan Trades Day on the Courthouse Square in San Saba on Saturday, October 3rd from 8am-2pm.
The organization will be collecting new twin sheet sets (XL or dorm size), pillows, bath towels, shampoo, body wash, laundry soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, toilet tissue, and cash donations to purchase items for the troops returning to Ft. Hood from overseas in November and December. The girls will be working under the direction of the Family Readiness Group for the Bravo Company 303rd MI BN who has 93 soldiers currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The single (unmarried) soldiers are no longer issued sheets or towels for example, and when they return from overseas their vehicles are in storage. When these young men and women arrive home, they go off to their barrack rooms and either have to call a cab to go into town to purchase these items or sleep on a bare mattress. Today's Girls are asking everyone to step up to the plate and donate these items, because we know they deserve a shower and a comfortable bed to rest on when they arrive home. The soldiers will begin coming home the first week in November and December, so we would embrace our community as part of the Today's Girl Program to support their endeavors in providing these items to our soldiers and show them that Central Texas does have a Big Heart and appreciates each of them.
To show you care, please drop off your donations at our booth at Pecan Trades Day or contact Kay Lynn Scott, PO Box 93, San Saba, Tx 76877, 325/372-8600 or you can email at: email@example.com.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
