The Cheyenne Elks Lodge 660 is preparing care packages for the 322 members of the Wyoming Army National Guard, currently deployed overseas defending our freedoms. It costs about $40 to fill and ship a 12"x12"x6" box with various snacks, personal hygiene items, and other assorted items. This is an opportunity to say thank you to a group of men and women who have left their homes and families to represent not only Wyoming, but the United States while protecting the things we hold dear to us. A $40 donation will Sponsor-A-Soldier to receive a care package with items that may not be readily available to him or her, and provide a little piece of home while they are far away from the comforts we all enjoy.
October 26th is National Deployment Day, a day to honor our deployed troops and their families for the bravery and sacrifice they are making for our country. What a wonderful gift it would be to put these packages together and ship them around that time.
Please consider making a donation to support this cause and the deployed men and women of the Wyoming Army National Guard.
