Commander Rose Gilliland has announced the post will participate in this “Operation Home Front” program, sponsored by Dollar Stores in our area. Each store is collecting donations of “Back to School” supplies which are to be distributed to needy military families for the new school year. Post 8870 has two such stores in our area, one in Edmonds at the Aurora Marketplace on Hwy 99, the other in Mukilteo, further north on Highway 99.
Our role in the project is to pick up the donated items (pencils, rulers,erasers, binders, etc.) from the stores and then sort them into packages for individual students, which we will do at the Legion Hall. Scheduling and sign ups will be handled over the Post meeting on Zoom on Wednesday July 15. If you can’t make the virtual meeting but wish to participate, email firstname.lastname@example.org to let the Commander know of your interest. Further information will also be sent out via email.
