Our 81 boxes from the February 27, 2016 packing session have successfully begun to arrive to their destinations. They are just in time to help pick up the spirits of 53 soldiers just before Easter.
The shipment weighed in at 932 pounds at a total cost of $4,358. We included 32 waterproof Bibles and letters.
Of the 81 boxes we distributed 69 care packages to soldiers stationed in Afghanistan and Iraq. The remaining 12 boxes were delivered to soldiers located in Kuwait, Persian Gulf, Korea and Egypt.
Our Postal Clerks Helping Hands
Behind the lines of fire at our Golden Gate Post Office work very exceptional postal clerks. OSC would like for you to meet Rusty Manes.
Rusty and all of the clerks at this office love to see the OSC care packages come in, and they are thrilled to be a part of our team in processing the packages to the troops. All 105 of our OSC shipments have gone through this post office and we can confirm that their customer service is second to none! They are the best! Many thanks to Rusty, Rochelle and crew for 12 1/2 years of exceptional service!
It takes many volunteers to keep this ministry going forward. We don’t always get to capture each and everyone who work behind the scenes but I am grateful for everyone that has helped Operation Soldier Care touch the lives of our troops.
God bless, Tony
