Fulton Elementary Brownie Troop 10161 and Daisy Troop 4341 are completing a service project in support of Operation Welcome Home, an organization that greets members of the military who are returning from overseas assignments. The girls will be collecting Thank You cards and store-bought prepackaged snacks for goodie bags to be presented to the military members upon arrival at BWI Airport.
You can support this service project by creating thank you cards or donating prepackaged snacks through Tuesday, May 19. A collection box is available in the Fulton Elementary lobby. If you have any questions, please contact Sherry Harms. For more information about Operation Welcome Home, please visit their website.
Tips for Cards:
- Please DO NOT date the cards or include full names or email addresses.
- The cards can be made from half of an 8 ½ x 11 piece of paper/card stock/construction paper. The paper can be cut in half, then folded like a card. OR, any size, even if it does not fold.
- In or on the card, a simple verse is good. Suggestions: Thank you for your service, Welcome Home, We appreciate your heroism, You Rock, Thank you for keeping us safe, Thank you for being there, Glad you are home, or God Bless America and You.
- Embellishments of stars, hearts, flags, balloons, or any fun thing you want to put on the cards are great. Some folks use stickers, sponge stars, anything they have on hand.
- PLEASE: Keep it positive and supportive–nothing negative.
