Thread: Operation Shoe Box

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Operation Shoe Box

    OSBPlease come out and help support our troops by riding with the Second Annual Operation Shoe Box benefit run on Saturday, May 9, 2009, starting in Candler Florida. Mary Harper needs our support in sending troops care packages of items soldiers need, but have a difficult time getting.

    Mary started Operation Shoebox when the war in Iraq broke out. At the time, six of her children were serving in the military simultaneously. She wanted to see that every US soldier knew that they were not forgotten.

    So, Mary started collecting items that men and women at war needed and shipping them to those soldiers. Just the postage for sending these care packages is over $10,000.00 per month, so she can use all the help we can give in cash and items. You can find a list of requested items on her website listed below.

    The run will take place on May 9, 2009 starting at the VFW 4493 in Candler on CR 464 (Maricamp Rd). The start and end of the run is at VFW post 4493, Maricamp Rd, Candler. Startup is from 9:30-11:00am.

    Stops along the way include the VFW 8087 in Eustis, American Legion 35 in Mount Dora and the Eagles 4335 in Eustis with the final stop being back at the VFW 4493 in Candler.

    There is a $5.00 donation requested to ride. More is welcome if you can give it. Folks collecting money will have numbered badges with ID.

    Contact Scott and Bambi 352 687-1675 or Belleview Mayor Tammy 352 454-4678 for information about the run. See Mary Harper’s web site www.operationshoebox.com for more details.
