Let's join together to say THANK YOU to our deployed troops currently fighting overseas, as well as our local veterans! Bring your friends, family and especially anyone who has served our country. We will have entertainment, games & food for the whole family. The Joshua Experience will be wrapping up the stage as our final entertainment of that special day. City of Irving, Texas is again making our entertainment possible with an amazing stage.

This one day event supplies our deployed troops with much needed daily necessities and encouragement during their deployment. This year we have been called on from USO units from around the world, and we need your help more than ever. We are trying to ship supplies to four or five counties, including Afghanistan, Kuwait, Iraq, Africa and Alaska.

Volunteers will be packing care packages for shipment to US troops deployed in Afghanistan. Any donations from our wish list to add to our collection are greatly appreciated!

LETTERS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
The letters of encouragement included in our packages go a long way in providing encouragement to our servicemen and women even when they return home. Often our words are the best gift we can share with those so far from home.

CRAFTS FOR TROOPS
We enjoy including homemade crafts & cards in our care packages, especially when they are made by little hands. Some ideas for crafts include homemade cards, ornaments, signs, tags or bracelets.

NEW CHILDREN'S BOOKS
We support the United Through Reading program which helps ease the stress of separation for military families by having deployed parents read children’s books aloud via DVD for their child to watch at home.
