Kid Kindness Cares for Servicemen and Women
November 10, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFree
Please join us in thanking our men and women from Massachusetts who are currently stationed overseas. We will be making “Thank You for Keeping Us Safe” cards and we will also be collecting donations to be placed in care packages for these brave men and women.
All of the donations and cards will be brought to the organization, Helping Our Troops in Stoneham, MA. They will send the packages to the soldiers in time for the holidays. Kid Kindness is happy to support our troops and the good work of Helping Our Troops (Massachusetts). We encourage families to involve their children in choosing an item or two to collect and donate.
Drop-in any time between 10:00 and 11:30 on November 10th!
