Volunteers packed out over 80,000 care letters from every corner of the nation and 75 care packages to deployed servicemembers and veterans in VA Homes.
Americas Adopt A Soldier held their Fourth Annual Christmas Day of “Giving Back” on Friday, Dec. 25, at Kilroys in Springfield. The owner of Kilroys, Phillip (Pip) Thomas, a veteran and a supporter of military family, without hesitation opened his doors again this year for care letter and care packing, saying “When do you want the doors unlocked? Quickly followed by, I’ll make the coffee for everyone.”
This year’s event volunteers packed over 80,000 care letters from every corner of the nation and 75 care packages to deployed servicemembers and veterans in VA Homes. Big thank-yous to Pip, his staff who volunteered to work and all volunteers. As a grassroots organization, Americas Adopt A Soldier is powered by “Community Volunteers.” Return thank you from deployed troops and veterans will be posted on Facebook.
