Kingwood Rotarians are once again collecting items for "Care Packages" to our troops serving overseas in harm's way in partnership with the Blue Star Mothers of America in Kingwood.  On November 26th, members of our club will deliver all of the items.  Last year, we helped helped fill over 250 boxes with lots of goodies to help show our troops that we love and support them.
 
If you would like to contribute items, CLICK HERE for a list of items needed.  Drop them off at one of our weekly dinners on Thursdays at The Union Kitchen between 6:15 PM and 7:30 PM or call Kingwood Rotarian Charlie Buscemi at 713-598-7129.
 
Like years past, Kingwood Rotary will once again have a basket of Christmas and holiday cards at The Union Kitchen's hostess desk on November 9th - 16th so patrons can write a special note to our troops.  Each Care Package contained a special note from back home to let the troops know we are thinking about them this 2019 holiday season, and throughout the year.
Last year, Sandi Nizzi, our 2018 President of the Kingwood Rotary Club, presented a $600 check to help pay the shipping costs for sending the Care Packages overseas.  We also delivered several hundred hand-crafted Christmas and holiday cards created by students at local elementary schools and Cypress Trails United Methodist Church with a personal note from each child.
