Our 91 boxes from the OSC 93rd Packing Session will begin to arrive a few days prior to the Thanksgiving holiday to 49 deployed soldiers! This shipment weighed in at 1,092 pounds and we distributed bibles in 38 of 91 care packages.
This packing session was a special one since we had many helping hands from Mrs. Davison’s 5th grade class at First Baptist Academy who had prepared care packages to be included in our shipment too. They actually collected and packed food items for the troops. Mrs. Davison’s class contributed a total of 10 care packages. Their class-wide project was a successful one. They even sent me a couple photos from their packing session. I’d like to thank them all for taking time out to help our soldiers and the Operation Soldier Care ministry! Great job!
We still have one packing session to go. The November 29, 2014 Christmas shipment will be our final shipment until January 10, 2015. We look forward to packing some goodies for the soldiers and having a quick turn around so that the shipment will arrive just before the Christmas holiday.
Again, thank you to Mrs. Davison’s 5th grade class and all of our OSC volunteers.
