CHESAPEAKE ALLEGRO CHAPTER #63 RESPONSIBLE FOR TROOP CARE PACKAGE SURGE
Thanks to a generous donation from the Chesapeake Allegro Chapter #63 Motorhome Club, the St. James’ Church of Downingtown, PA was able to pack 32 boxes for the Christmas mailing to those in military service. Parishioners graciously volunteered to mail them so they would be received in time for the Holidays.
The donation is part of an on-going Chesapeake Allegro Club Program whereby Wagonmasters can designate a “charity of choice” for Club members to donate “goods in kind”. Karen and Ron Meacham chose the St. James’ Troop Care Package Outreach and donations of snacks, candy, sundries and stationery items were collected in November.
This St. James’ Church outreach program was started several years ago. There are currently 7 committee members that assist and since the program inception they have mailed out close to 400 packages to military personnel in Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea and Guantanamo Bay.
