Care Package Collection Drive a Big Success

June 28, 2009

Yesterday’s care package collection drive was a huge success, garnering nearly 100 boxes of items  — enough to assemble several hundred care packages for U.S. soldiers — and $1,500 in donations for the Weymouth-based non-profit CarePacks.

Held at Milton’s Heritage Hall American Legion Post — which donated the use of its facilities — the collection drive brought out local residents from across the South Shore, who dropped off bags and boxes full of clothing, toiletries, snacks, writing and reading materials and other items for U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.  In addition to volunteers from the Milton and Quincy Republican committees, student volunteers from Quincy and Milton helped sort the donated items, which were delivered to CarePacks for later assembly into individual care packages for our soldiers. Visit the Quincy Republicans website for photos from yesterday’s successful event.

It’s D-Day plus 65 years: Show your support for our troops!

D-Day Omaha

Sixty-five years ago today, thousands of American soldiers — many of them still in their teens — helped save the world.  At a time when it’s become fashionable for some people to blame America for all of the world’s troubles, it behooves us to remember the fact that, were it not for America and those brave soldiers, there likely wouldn’t be a world today — at least not one worth living in.

Consider what the world would be like today had the Nazis won World War II. Pretty horrific thought, don’t you think?  That’s why it’s important for patriotic Americans to stand up to the forces of political correctness and defend America’s record for protecting and advancing freedom around the globe.

To that end, the Republican committees in Quincy and Milton are joining forces with the Weymouth non-profit CarePacks to organize a care package collection for our troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. On Saturday June 27 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Heritage Hall American Legion post (114 Granite Ave., Milton), volunteers will collect toiletries, snacks, books, magazines and other items for packaging and shipment to the brave men and women who today continue the legacy of the “Greatest Generation.”
