Donations for our Troops
This month our gym is partnering with Alyssa Paul to help the Marine Medium Tilt-Rotor Squadron, who are deploying overseas this month and won't be home until March of 2017. There are approximately 160 Marines, both men and women who need us to help them with the simpler things in life.
Powdered Drink Mix- Cocoa, instant coffee, tea bags, emergen-c
Meal Enhancers: Ramen, seasoning salt, individual packets of hot sauce
Quick Protein- energy bars, tuna, non-perishable USDA beef jerky (NO Pork)
Toiletries- tooth brushes, tooth paste, floss, cotton swabs, shaving lotion, razors, individual tissue packets
Personal Care- baby wipes, eye drops, lip balm, lotion, aspirin, feminine hygiene products
Foot Care- Moleskin, medicated foot powder
Disposable hand warmers- the desert gets cold at night and can be as low as the 20's (F)
Cotton Socks and undies
Now just because these men and women are in the armed forces doesn't mean they don't need some forms of entertainment so other items are also welcome.
Reading Material- Books, magazines, comic books
Word Games and Puzzles- crossword, word find, Sudoku
Games- foam footballs, frisbees, hackey sack, playing cards
Batteries- AA & D
Theses items all can be purchased from anywhere but buying in bulk at Costco or Sam's Club may be more cost effective. Cash donations are also accepted. Every little bit helps, these men and women are giving up so much to afford us freedoms we tend to take for granted so let's show our support by giving them all we can.
Donations can be brought to the gym ( 7000 E. McDowell Rd. Ste. 130, Scottsdale, AZ 85257) or to Sparrow Financial (16100 N 71st St, Scottsdale, AZ 85254).
