I am big on helping and supporting people in need and specially our troops out there, this project gave me the capability to help a little by donating items from these buildings that were still in good condition. Below is the letter we received in attention to my Superintendent that made this project a success.

Mr. Barry Simpson
Thefollowing letter that we received recently from a Marine in Afghanistanthanks you for your recent contributions to Operation America Cares better thanwe ever could:
“Onbehalf of my squadron I would like to thank you very much for the care packageswe received just as we were returning from a night in the field. We were prettytired. The care packages show us that there are people out there who appreciatewhat we do. It’s a reminder of why we do it and helps us to stay positive during this time away from our homes. Whenwe begin to lose our motivation and feel as if people could care less aboutwhat we do we receive care packages and letters from complete strangers, whichproves our sacrifices mean so much more. So, thank you very much. CplMatthew T.”
Asyou can see, your generosity demonstrates to our young men and women servingaway from home, that we recognize and appreciate their sacrifices on our behalf.We could not exist without your support. Our care packages make them a littlemore comfortable by providing items that they do not have access to much of thetime, if ever. Many of them have nofamilies or are from families that cannot afford this kind of support, and ourcare packages are the only mail that they receive.
We continue to pack and ship carepackages as supplies and requests come in. We have many businesses andorganizations involved and continue to grow. We have now shipped over 6,000care packages to deployed troops! We definitely make a difference!
Our federal ID# is 27-4283172 fortax deduction purposes. We look forward to working with you on future mailings.God bless you! Once again, thank you for supporting our troops!
