2016 Holiday Service Project ~ Project Coordinator Janet Lindner
The Detachment is continuing to support the same Holiday Service Project that we have done since 2006. Last year the Detachment collected monetary contributions and toys & gifts for several deserving organizations. Janet used the donations to purchase additional toys & gifts. Two carloads of items went to North Hills Community Outreach. They were extremely thankful for our generosity. Items were also distributed to Genesis of Pittsburgh and Renewal, Inc., on Grant Avenue in Pittsburgh, which now services Lydia’s Place, an organization that we supported in previous years.
This year we are going to begin the collections in October & November so that the items can be given to the organizations early in December.
Toys, gift items, especially needed are items for boys & teenagers; any Steelers items (shirts in large sizes); gift cards; even small toys & items less than $5 are greatly appreciated. Do not wrap the items.
Holiday gift-wrap & gift bags, ribbon & tape are also needed.
If you don’t like to shop don’t worry – Janet does. Monetary donations will be used to purchase toys & gifts & gift cards.
Items and Donations will be collected at the Marine Corps Birthday Dinner and the October & November Detachment meetings or can be sent to Janet at the address below.
Bring your items or donations to the October or November Detachment meetings or the Marine Corps Birthday Celebration and give them to Janet Lindner. She will see that they are distributed to the organizations listed above.
Contributions by check can be sent to Janet Lindner, 930 Perry Highway. Pittsburgh. PA 15229.
(All monies are accounted for and a report is prepared for the Detachment).
Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide to this worthwhile project.
