Starting Monday (May 24, 2010) and running until Friday June 18,
2010 we will be collecting for the Troop’s Independence Day Shipment.

Packing Party / Shipment is planned for Saturday, June 19, 2010 at 920
Wildwood, Jefferson City, MO.

Collection boxes are going up in 5 DHSS buildings and each building as
well has a person to contact to make monetary donations:

• In the 912 Wildwood building, the collection box is located in the Employee
Break Room; contact for monetary donations is Marti Thruston, Division
of Senior and Disability Services.

• In the 920 Wildwood building, the collection box is located in the Entrance
Lobby; contact for monetary donations is George Lauer, ISTD.

• In the 930 Wildwood building, the collection box is located in the Entrance
Lobby; contact for monetary donations is Peggy Hartman, Bureau of
Communicable Disease Control and Prevention.

• In the Knipp building, the collection box is located in the Entrance
area; contact for monetary donations is Terri Russler.

• In the 1617 Southridge bldg, the collection box is located in Employee
Break Room; contact for monetary donations is Carla Kolb.

Monetary donations are also possible online at http://georgelauer.com/

This time we’d like to send items with an Independence Day Theme (NO
Fireworks).

Remember when selecting items, that they have to be small enough to fit
into the shipping boxes – 12” x 12” x 5-1/2”.

General items that are always good to send include:

Little Debbie treats, Candy (hard candies hold up better), Oreo
cookies, trail mix, nuts / cashews, hygiene items, liquid shower soaps,
medicated powder, drink mixes, beef snack sticks, non perishable food
items, lip balm, sun screen, aloe lotion, individually wrapped handi
wipes, small bottles of Germ-x hand sanitizer, saline inhalers (helps
nose bleeds), eye drops (moisturizing), shoe inserts (like Dr. Scholl’s)
/ arch supports, DVD’s and music CD’s, letter writing materials (pens,
paper, stationary, small notebooks), bug repellant, flashlights, air
fresheners, sun block, travel size games, cards, dice etc. Anything
homemade like cookies, bourbon balls, etc.

Please do not donate anything is aerosol cans.

If you want to send stuffed animals, please send small beanie baby sized
ones. These will be easier to pack and when larger ones fall into the
wrong hands they can be used to conceal IEDs.

Major Norman E. James, just back home, has the following suggestions: plastic poker chips (evidently to go with the cards); USB flash drives (the ones they get over there are seriously virused and crash the computers – we actually had this happen once); travel size packages of Kleenex; batteries (AA typically); eyeglass cleaner and/or wipes (for their balistic eyewear); nylon string; duct tape; scotch tape; magazines (gun, hunting/fishing, biker, car, muscle/fitness – no girlie ones as they are NOT allowed); and mint gel toothpaste (evidently a unique item for the US).

At Present, we have 15 Soldiers in our list to receive packages:

PFC Maxwell Engler
CPL James Stringer
CS2(SW) Anthony Hart
Dominic Butel
PFC Brent Dunlap
Specialist Christopher L. Cade
Sgt. Travis Pogue
SFC Janice McConnell
Derick Asahl
Shalamar Brewington
Brianna R. HORTON
Spc Richard M. Beauprez
Lcpl Brad Miller
Lcpl Daniel L Lohmann
SSG Earl Hall

11 of these are the immediate family (sons, brothers, sisters, nieces,
and nephews) of DHSS employees, 4 are very close friends.

Below are pictures of SSG Earl Hall – The Newest Troop to Our Network.
