Kendall Masonic Lodge 897 is conducting a Christmas Care Package project for service members serving away from home during the 2018 Christmas holidays. We currently plan to ship packages to the 3rd Cavalry Regiment normally stationed at Ft. Hood but now deployed to Iraq, as well as other military personnel serving away from their homes and families during the holidays.
We are asking the community to help us with this project by donating the following type items:
– Shelf-Stable Foods—Non-Perishables: Beef jerky, Vienna sausage, beanie weenies, chips, cookies, nuts, gum, hard candy, etc.
– Personal Hygiene Items: Body wash, deodorant, tooth paste, toothbrushes, foot powder, wet wipes, etc.
– Leisure Items: Magazines, writing materials, books, music CDs, etc.
– Christmas Cards: from you to soldier.
We are also looking for shoe boxes (or boxes of similar size) in which to package items.
Our primary donation station is next to the Boerne Post Office at:
Kendall Masonic Lodge 897
897 E. Blanco Road
Boerne, Texas 78006
(Open for donation each Wednesday & Saturday morning from 9:00 to 11:00 AM)
If you can’t bring your items to the lodge, call 830-249-8917 or 210-241-5268, and we will make arrangements to pick up your items.
If you don’t have the time or ability to shop, you can make a monetary donation by mailing to the above address and identifying the donation as gift for soldiers.
