Joseph-Beth: Help Soldiers Have a Better Christmas
From a news release:
PRIDE & PAGES, Inc. and The City of Union's Adopt-a-Unit Program invite you to join them for a fundraiser to support a unit of recently deployed soldiers! The City of Union Adopt-a-Unit program supports the Headhunters Troop, HHT, 32 CAV, 1 BCT, 101st Airborne (Air Assault) unit from Ft. Campbell, KY.
Our goal is to see that the children of the 138 deployed soldiers receive a book for Christmas with a special message from their parent while away this year! Our soldiers have written aspecial message to their children that will be placed in the donated childrens and YA books, we will wrap them and see that they receive their book in time for Christmas.
