The WION Gang and Blue Star Mothers are out here at Carl's Supermarket in Lake Odessa collecting Treasures for Troops!
We have had some fun getting to the staff at Carl's Market and look forward to doing some more interviews with them throughout the day.
Carl's has some great sales today that match items on our list such as Progresso Soup, Toilet Paper, Mac & Cheese, Little Debbie's Cakes and Microwave Popcorn! Stop out and pick up some supplies for your home and grab a few extra items to add to the truck!
Blue Star Moms Carolyn McAdams and Nikki Brandt are out here passing out the list of items that we need the most and collecting Loot in the Boot! All cash donations will be used to help cover the cost of shipping the boxes.
Monday at Muir Village Market we collected $170.
Tuesday at Portland VFW we collected $160.
And with today's donations so far along with the donations sent in to WION Radio, we have enough to mail out 34 boxes.
If we can fill the truck today, we should have enough to fill all 34 boxes complete with shipping covered! (And on a side note, this will make me win my bet with Jim and earn me a Lamplight Sunday Buffet.) So come and join in the fun and help us fill the 2015 Chevy Colorado from Berger Motor Sales in Ionia.
