My husband and I heard about Operation Shoe Box six yrs ago when we moved to the Villages. We felt that this was something we wanted to volunteer for. My huband is an AirForce veteran, our daughter retired after 20yrs in the Air Force and now works @ the VA in Gainesville. Our son spent 17 yrs in the Coast Guard. With all the sevice connection in the family we felt this was something close to our hearts. It has been very heart warming to donate our time early Monday. I is very gratifying to hear from the men & women who receive our pkgs (Operation Shoe Box) stating what it means to them to recieve a touch of home treats as well as notes from the folks who take the time to write and thank them for the job that they are doing.
To say the truth we look forward to our time spent @ Operation Shoe Box each wk.
