Please Help Support Our Troops!
The AmeriCorps Ohio College Guides, along with the Muskingum County Community Foundation (MCCF), local high schools and the community are holding a collection drive of mainly breakfast items (Pop-Tarts, instant oatmeal, granola bars, power bars, canned fruit, canned fruit juices, canned V8 juice, drink mixes, coffee, tea, etc.) until April 26th to gather and assemble approximately 50 care packages to be sent to the members of Charlie Company 210 BSB with the 10th Mountain Division who are currently serving in Afghanistan. It is the hope of those involved in organizing this event that our small gesture will provide support and encouragement for those who have selflessly placed themselves in a position of service and honor for our country and also provide an opportunity for our community to remember the great sacrifices made by our service members each and every day on our behalf.
If you are interested in donating items or funds towards this project you may do so by visiting one of the high school drop off locations at Philo, Maysville, West Muskingum, Tri-Valley, John Glenn or Zanesville High Schools or by dropping off donations at Scholarship Central located at the Muskingum County Community Foundation at 534 Putnam Avenue, Zanesville. All monetary donations should be mailed to Scholarship Central with checks being made out to the MCCF. Please put attention Care Package Project on the memo line to ensure that your funds go toward supporting this great project.
