SAN PEDRO PACKAGES FOR PATRIOTS

Presents

4th ANNUAL TREATS FOR TROOPS

 

                  We've all been there: Trick-or-treating at every house on the block sure was fun

                 for the kids, but now you're stuck with mounds of candy that will most likely get

                 thrown away.

                      

HOW CAN YOU HELP??? DON'T TOSS THAT LOOT!!!

 

                 Most of our men and women overseas have not had a piece of candy in months, and

                 would love to have a taste of that hometown tradition! The "Treats for Troops"

                 goal: To collect as much "extra" Halloween candy as we can for our troops overseas!

              
                  By donating just half of your child's Halloween candy (which would probably be

                 tossed out anyway) or pick up and extra bag at the store, you can bring a whole ton

                 of happiness to our homesick troops!

      


CHRISTMAS!!!

 

                  Its Christmas morning. You're bundled up watching the family open gifts. The kids

                 are giggling over what Santa has brought for them.

                 Now imagine if this was only a dream, stuck thousands of miles away from your

                 family for the holidays, feeling alone in a cold, strange place. This is the unfortunate

                 reality facing our men and women overseas. For them this will be a lonely holiday

                  season.

WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP???


                 
Our goal is to collect as many Christmas decorations as we can for our men and

                  women fighting for freedom so far from home this holiday season. Discount stores

 v                are the best place to pick up small CHRISTMAS items. Plain or fancy, it doesn't

                  matter! They will all bring holiday happiness to our homesick troops.

 

          Santa hats & beards, tiny CHRISTMAS TREES, reindeer ears, garland,

          snowflakes, stockings, CHRISTMAS lights, & CHRISTMAS cards are

          some suggestions. These items need to fit into a military box measuring

          12”x12”x5 ˝”.

  San Pedro Packages for Patriots™ is a 501(c)(3) charity. Volunteer-led, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the support of the brave men and women serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.  We support Soldiers, Sailors, Marines Airmen and Coast Guardsmen by providing letters, care packages, and comfort items to the deployed. We do have a TAX ID# if you need a tax write-off.

 

 

 

 

 

   This is the dream of Mike Walker, owner of San Pedro Automotive, a Toyota repair shop in San Pedro, CA.

 

   Mike and his wife Shirley Vojkovich, have been sending packages to our men & women in Iraq and Afghanistan for several years. Mike wants to do as much as he can to support the people that are fighting for our freedom. It's because of people like them that this is a free country today. 

 

   Mike has asked his customers and friends to help with this endeavor. They have responded by donating items that our troops can use that they probably aren't receiving otherwise. Some of them don't even receive letters from home, so a package to them means everything. Teachers have gotten their students to write letters and draw pictures for them. Everyday customers bring more items that they've purchased to be shipped to our Marines, Solders, Sailors, Air Force, Coast Guard, & National Guard. 

 

   Mike has been featured on the local Fox TV News program telling of how his customers have helped.  Mike and Shirley have receive a framed picture with signatures of all of the Marines in the Baker Co that were stationed in Iraq, with appreciation of all of the items that Mike and Shirley have sent to them. Plus, the list keeps growing with the number of letters, thanks, flags, and certificates that they have received from grateful men and women who are deployed appreciate receiving something from home.
