Thank You From Sedro Woolley Community Troop Support !!
October 27, 2015
Folks from Skagit, Whatcom and Island Counties have been volunteering, donating and providing support to Sedro Woolley Community Troop Support since 2004 enabling the Mission Statement, “People in our community sending care packages to people from our community serving overseas in the U.S. Military.” Literally tons of care packages have made their way all over the globe, and thousands of military lives have been touched!
Sedro Woolley Community Troop Support (SWCTS) is dissolving as an organization and would like to thank everyone that contributed to the success of their efforts throughout the years. The current Board of Directors would like the public to know there are a total of four American Flags that have been flown in combat by troops overseas in honor of the people on the home front that have stood with them in action and in spirit. These Combat Flags will be distributed on or around Veteran’s Day for permanent, safe keeping and viewing to Sedro-Woolley High School; Anacortes Middle School; Sedro Woolley Eagles FOE 2069; and Janicki Industries in Sedro Woolley.
Care package items held to date by SWCTS has been donated to American Legion Memorial Post 91 in Burlington to be used in their services to local Veterans in need.
ALL our retained monetary resources will be forwarded to Operation Gratitude to be used towards sending care packages to U.S. Military serving in combat areas overseas.
We encourage people to visit the site at www.operationgratitude.com for continued contributions in supporting our troops overseas !!
