I am very proud to announce that Jared Dowden has chosen to work with Soldiers’ Angels for his Eagle Scout project. Jared will be collecting items and monetary donations for Soldiers’ Angels Holiday for Heroes campaign. He has already distributed over 1,000 fliers and got some publicity. Soldiers’ Angels is very excited to receive these items and donations to send some love from home to our deployed heroes for the holidays. We support the troops 365 a days a year, but the holidays can be a particularly difficult time to be away from home. The items collected by Jared will certainly bring a smile to a hero’s face.
My Eagle Project is called Holiday for Heroes and will benefit Soldiers’ Angels. I am collecting the following items for Soldier’s Angels to send Holiday Care packages to deployed service members in a combat zone: hot cocoa packets, hot cider packets, men’s white sockes (size 9-15), candy bars (any size), hard candy, power bars, nuts, Christmas cards (signed but not sealed), and handmade Blankets of Belief.
