United States Troop Care Package Drive

Schools and Libraries

May 17, 2016

From: Madeira City Schools

"The Madeira City School system is teaming up with the City of Madeira for this year's Annual Troop Care Package drive to deliver much needed and appreciated care packages to military troops serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and other remote deployments throughout the world.

Last year, over 2,000 pounds of donations were collected, which resulted in 654 boxes filled. So, with the generosity of our Madeira School system students, families, faculty and staff, we hope to achieve this year the goal of filling more than 1,000 boxes!

Specially marked container will be placed in the (MHS reception area) to collect your donations. Attached is a wish list of needed and wanted items, be sure to take a copy with you on your next shopping trip.

If you know of a family member or friend who is deployed, please email Jose & Teresa Baldan (jab257rain@gmail.com) to provide their name, rank, and deployed address so we can get a package sent directly to them.

The drive runs until May 27, 2016 and packages will be filled and shipped in time to arrive for the week of July 4th. Every donation helps."
