When: October 4 – 14, 2010
The local hot spot for good food, Little Hooties joins Georgia Kids Academy and Operation One Voice supporting Special Forces troops by becoming a drop off point for anyone within the community that wish to drop off goodies for care packages which are being shipped to Army Special Forces troops overseas. Any wishing to drop off an item may do so from October 4 through the 14.
On October 15, 2010, local police officers, firefighters & deputies will join children at Georgia Kids Academy to fill boxes (care packages). Throughout this project Georgia Kids Academy will teach these children the importance of community support and our military troops.
The list below contains items that we would like to collect by 10/14/2010. Operation One Voice, a Georgia based non-profit designed by police officers, firefighters and community leaders and Georgia Kids Academy will pay for the cost to ship these packages.
The families at Georgia Kids Academy will also be joining in to support our troops by donating items for the troops by dropping off items at the child care center from the list provided.
Thank you for supporting our Troops.
Items that could go into the Care Package:
While soldiers are always excited to receive care items from home, it is important to send items in individual packages so they may carry snack items on missions. We encourage children to include a short note or card to the soldier.
