On Tuesday, we were hosted by the Portland VFW Post 4090 where we collected $191 in cash and filled the truck with 200 packages of Jerky from Oberto as well as many wonderful items that were dropped off.
Carl's Supermaket in Lake Odessa hosted on Wednesday where we again filled the truck with donations and collected $75 in cash donations to cover shipping expenses. Here we also met several new friends and enjoyed stories about deployed sons and daughters.
Millie's Family Restaurant greeted us with open arms on Thursday where they had been collecting donations throughout the previous week! With donations collected this day added to all the previous days, Penny won her bet with Jim that we would collect more then 2 full truck loads! We also collected $119 in cash donations to help with shipping costs.
