On December 9, the Aluminum Falcons participated in Support the Troops with EB where we helped package and assemble 70 care packages, weighing a total of 1763 pounds, for deployed military personnel all over the world. Packages contained variety of things like basic toiletries, chocolates, and signed Christmas cards along with over 1400 boxes of Girl Scout cookies. There were over 20 people ready to help out ranging from 10 years old to 65 years old. It took us over 2 hours to finish with the boxes. This was the second care package event the team has helped support, see the first here. In the end we ended the day with pizza and everyone was happy to help.
We received a thank you letter on January 3rd from one group that received packages.
