Collection for the troops exceeds 570 pounds!

Last year we were thrilled that we collected 236 pounds of items for Operation Support Our Troops-IL. We collected beef jerky, cans of Pringles, foot powder, mints, hand sanitizer, gum, crackers, etc. The kinds of things that are nice to have when you're overseas serving your country!

This year we topped our goal of 300 pounds - in fact, we almost doubled our goal at 570 pounds collected by staff and members! Plus, through Jeans Day donations, we were able to raise $170 in cash for miscellaneous expenses and to fill in the gaps in donations.

A big THANK YOU to our staff and our members who were so generous this year!
