Each packing session is always unique and special. This particular packing session we were honored to have American Blue Star Mother Jeanne Fell join us in the afternoon on Saturday, June 29th. Jeanne is an Active Member of the Southwest Florida Blue Star Mother’s Chapter – FL4 and is a Proud 2 Blue Star U.S. Army Mother. Her son is currently serving in Afghanistan and her daughter just returned from serving a 2012 deployment. Thank you Jeanne and thank you to your family for serving!
OSC is very fortunate to have so many wonderful volunteers to support our troops. A big thank you goes to Kent Anderson who took time to take some photos of our volunteers at work.
