My name is Larry Diehlman, and I am a Life Scout in Mantua Troop 7083. I’m currently working on my Boy Scout Eagle project, which will be sending care packages to overseas troops. In your bulletin is a list of items I am asking as donations for these boxes. These are the only items that can go in the boxes. There will be two donation boxes set up in the church: one for food items, and one for non-food items. They will be set up from May 6th-May 27th. You may give a monetary donation, if you’d rather, to “Adopt-a-Box” to help pay for the postage (checks made out to Troop 7083). Any donations are greatly appreciated!!! Also, if you have the addresses of any deployed troops overseas, you may contact me at [email protected].
