For the month of November we are taking on two Love thy Neighbor projects (because we’re ambitious like that).
From now until November 22nd we will be collecting Christmas Cards for veterans, military families and those in active duty. Cards will be collected at BOTH locations (Murrieta and Santa Fe Springs). We appreciate your participation in this and ask that you follow these guidelines:
- Use generic salutations such as “Dear Service Member”
- Christmas cards only please, no letters and no envelopes
- Please do not use cards with glitter, or put glitter or confetti in the cards (it can aggravate health issues for ill or wounded warriors)
- Do not include your contact info (no emails, addresses or phone numbers), this program is not meant to foster a pen pal
Help us spread the joy and hope of the Christmas season to those who are most deserving – those who have fought (and continue to fight) for our freedom!
At our Murrieta location we will be supporting PROJECT TOUCH this Thanksgiving season. PROJECT TOUCH is a non-profit organization that works to get homeless individuals off the streets. They partner with businesses, churches and other non-profits to help make this possible. This month we are collecting to the following non-perishable items:
- Peanut butter
- Canned meat
- Pasta Sauce
- Canned soup
We will be collecting these items at our Murrieta location through the end of November.
