Thank You for YOUR Support

Treasures for Troops Donations from the Suggested List of Items

Thanks to Jeff Wakelin, VP of sales for Oberto Brands, we will be receiving 200 PACKAGES OF BEEF JERKY for our troops! So thankful for their generosity!

Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers who were involved in making these arrangements!

Thank YOU Muir Village Market!

This will be our first Treasures for Troops Collection Site where the 2015 Chevy Colorado will be filled with WION Staff and Equipment to broadcast while collecting donations on Monday, Dec 1st from 2-6pm!  They also donated enough plastic bowl storage containers to make sure each Box of Love received one!  

It is my understanding that many deployed units have access to a microwave where they can heat up items such as soup if they are forced to miss a meal.  However, they don't have dishes handy so often struggle to find something to cook in.  These disposable bowls are perfect to heat up canned items and also allow the Blue Star Mom's to package items likes cookies, crackers, etc that might otherwise get broken as tightly as they pack up boxes.

Thank you Muir Village Market for thinking outside (or literally INSIDE) the box with this donation!

WION THANKS Duane Cross and Snap-On Tools along with WION's own Phil Cloud for the donation of a CASE of Snap-On Socks. That's 48 pairs! A big thank you!

Blue Star Mothers are accepting monetary donations to help cover the cost of shipping boxes!

Each box costs $15.45 to ship each box of love.  For a donation of $154 you can cover 10 boxes, for $500 you could cover 33 boxes!  Whether you can cover 1 box or 50 boxes...every donation is appreciated!

Thank You N8MRC for donating the cost to ship 2 Boxes of Love!
Thank You Joan Garland for donating $100 to ship Boxes of Love!
Thank You Mike & Roxanne for donating $20 to ship Boxes of Love!

WION Radio also wishes to THANK the other community partners donating  extra items to make the Treasures for Troops collection possible.

Thank You Ionia Moose Lodge for donating totes to pack the back of the pick up with Treasures!
