Soldier Seeks Care Packages for Troops In Iraq
The Wounded Warriors at Nebo, a local, non-profit, interdenominational ministry (not affiliated with the Wounded Warrior Project) has received a request for 200 care packages for troops currently serving in Iraq. An e-mail was sent to the ministry by Sgt. Beckett who is serving in the chaplaincy in that country.
Beckett, while he was stationed at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, assisted the ministry set up many retreats, rest and relaxation weekends and day events for the wounded, injured and ill servicemen and women being treated at the San Antonio Military Medical Center. The ministry members know Beckett’s heart and desire to help those who are still in the battle to protect us. He would not make this request unless he saw a true need.
So, in response to Beckett’s plea the Wounded Warriors at Nebo (WWAN) team is requesting the help of the community. WWAN is asking people to help pay the postage for one or more of the boxes at $17 per box. Anyone willing to do this can send a check to Wounded Warriors at Nebo, PO Box 574, Fredericksburg, Texas 78624. Also, a check can be mailed to WWAN, Fredericksburg United Methodist Church, 1800 North Llano, Fredericksburg, Texas 78624. If sending a check please write, “care pack.” on the memo line. Online giving can be done at www.fredumc.org. Click the “Ministry” button and then on “Wounded Warriors at Nebo”. Scroll down to donate and follow directions. Additionally, online giving can be done by going to facebook.com/ww.nebo. Click the donate button below the top photo.
Another way to help is by donating some of the items that will be put in the box. Those items include individual packages of Kleenex, hand wipes, fruit roll-ups, trail mix, peanut butter crackers, Pringles, jerky, candy (no chocolate), on-the-go tooth brush pack of 4, toothpaste, dental floss, Crystal Lite packs, and paperback fiction books. These items can be dropped off the Fredericksburg United Methodist Church gym at 1800 North Llano on Saturday, November 25, 9:30am – 2:00pm and Sunday, November 26, 2:00pm – 5:00pm.
Please help WWAN send a message of love and gratitude to our troops.
