We want to thank Girl Scout Troop 62106 from Methuen for their recent care package drive for our U.S. soldiers stationed in Afghanistan. Specifically we would like to thank Brownie Melissa for organizing this drive with NECFOM.
2013 Valentine's Day Card Drive a Great Success!
Students from schools throughout Massachusetts participated in a Valentine's Day Card Drive where thousands of cards were hand drawn and then mailed to our troops stationed in Afghanistan. We are happy to announce that more than 5,000 students took part in making handmade Valentine's Day cards that were enclosed in care boxes which also contained donated products for our troops. These care packs and cards arrived in time for Valentine's Day and were sent to Camp Dwyer to members of the New Hampshire Army National Guard 1st Battalion, 169th Aviation Regiment (MEDEVAC).
As of March 8, 2013, NECFOM volunteers have shipped 29,959 care packages containing products valued over $874,600 raised by schools and other organizations for our deployed troops. More than 76,525 cards and letters have been mailed to our troops utilizing more than 27,480 volunteers made up of students and civic organizations throughout the New England area.
NECFOM supports our troops by organizing troop drives within schools and civic organizations throughout the New England states supporting all military personnel around the globe. NECFOM pays for the packaging and for any postage for the products that they raise to send to our heroes who defend our freedom.
