Crofton Garden Club Sends Gift Bags to U.S. Troops

Operation Christmas2Crofton Village Garden Club members jumped into action last year when I mentioned my annual efforts on behalf of Operation Christmas Stocking.  Their hands-on participation this year was even greater than last. Thank you!

Harriet Kiilehua, Shirley Townes, Jane McClanahan, Gillian and Roy Myers (pictured with me in white), Shirley Levendoski, C.J. Salisbury, Marcia Richard and Pat Stevenson helped to sort and count items for the 180 holiday gift bags.  Many other members donated money and gift items, including paperback books, toiletries, and snacks.  When the bags were finally filled, with the help of many Long & Foster agents and staff members as well as the garden club, I was able to ship 8 cartons to Operation Give who, in turn, will send them overseas to the troops.

Last year, we were delighted to hear from service members in Korea that had received our gift bags.

Crofton Village Garden Club will honor our troops again in November when we make red, white and blue flower arrangements for recuperating soldiers at the Loch Raven VA Community Living and Rehab Center in Baltimore.
