Well, 2011 is here and the club is ready to move on! We will be collecting hand made Valentine Cards for the soldiers serving in Iraq & Afghanistan through January 21. They will all be brought to the Lakeland Hills YMCA for packaging by the YMCA Leaders and then Operation Jersey Cares will ship them to the soldiers in time for Valetines Day.
Please bring your completed cards to either the YMCA on Fanny Rd in Mountain Lakes or the Rockaway Township library. We would love it if girl Scout troops or students made this a project. The more cards we collect, the better! We have been sponsoring this project for 10 years!
The club, along with the YMCA & Key Club at Mountain Lakes high school is also collecting used eyeglasses. The club collects eyeglasses on an ongoing basis at a variety of drop off locations, but we will be donating all eyeglasses collected through February 6th to the Key Club for their project.
Drop of sites are: in Rockaway, PNC bank on Main St, Denville; Provident bank & Smart World Coffee, both in Broadway, in Boonton, Union Center National Bank and at the YMCA, Jan 21-February 6, 2011
