Tikkun for Troops

Sunday, June 24, 9 a.m.


JCC Cares is collaborating with NextGen Cares and Operation Gratitude to make a positive impact on the lives of U.S. troops, and we need your help! Join us as we spend Sunday morning assembling 5,000 packages for our troops.  We will work together in assembly line formation to consolidate all the items that we have collected in to gallon-size ziplock bags. There will also be an assembly line for families with young children to volunteer at their own pace. All families and all ages welcome at this event. We will also be writing thank you letter to our brave heroes.

We’re collecting items from our Amazon Wish List to create Patrol Care Kits for care packages. These packages will go to active duty troops currently deployed in harm’s way for use when they are away from base for several days at a time.

We are making it even easier to donate care package items this year by using Amazon Wish List (we are not collecting individual items in drop-off bins this year). You buy the items through Amazon, and they will send the items directly to us. We will be packing the items on June 24, so please make sure the items you purchase will be delivered by June 18.
