The temperature in Iraq and Afghanistan reaches 120 degrees plus in the summer
and occasionally they have snow in the winter.Many live in tents. It is now getting colder,similar to our weather.We get our addresses from the web site
If you go to that site, you will learn how it began… A soldier asking his parents to continue sending packages to him so he could share them with the soldiers who never get any mail. That is what we do… We send to the volunteer soldier address with
“Attn: Any Soldier”
on the box. That volunteer soldier watches to see who didn’t get mail and then our Care Package goes to that lonely soldier.If you know of anyone who is serving in Iraq or Afghanistan, please send us the address and we will be sure to send them a Care Package as well.
As of now, we have sent 670 Care Packages since October 2007.
We recently received a US Flag that had been ﬂown over a Marine Corps base in Afghanistan on July 4, 2010, along with a certiﬁcate of appreciation for supporting the troops serving there.Flat Rate mail is $12.50 per box. Those wishing to contribute funds for postage or contents of the boxes may send checks to: Bear Lake Promoters, c/o Gloria Edwards, P.O. Box 224,Bear Lake, MI 49614. Or drop off at Manistee News Advocate.
