Strike's current Campaign for Change initiative is for our deployed men and women of the US Armed Forces. We are collecting items and donations to put together care packages for our military members currently serving overseas. Also, if you have kiddos that would like to make cards or drawings to send, I know little personalized touches are really appreciated. :)
If you would like to make a monetary donation, I am going to make a Sam's Club run this weekend. Item donations would be great as well. Our last day to bring in the items in this coming Monday, June 27th.
If you would like to contribute, I would greatly appreciate. It's just a small thing we can do to show appreciation to our military members who make sacrifices every day to keep you and I safe here at home!
