Project Mail Call was spotlighted at CCRWC’s March 22 meeting. While Mary Ettel, co-founder of the organization, spoke about how and why the organization packs and sends care boxes and letters to U.S. military personnel serving overseas; CCRWC’s Caring for America committee chair, Kim Sherk, gave meeting attendees an opportunity to support the organization. CCRWC members and guests donated $580 to help support our troops serving abroad in harm’s way. Project Mail Call donations are also used to help our soldiers support citizens in war-torn areas.
At regularly scheduled packing sessions (and other times as requested), volunteers pack boxes for military units based on the their unique needs and requests. Particular attention is given to military units that are either in remote locations and do not receive mail or that provide humanitarian aid to schools, hospitals, orphanages, or villages.
