ANGEL HEART PAJAMA PROJECT — (Oct. 20, 2022) The Community Outreach Committee is sponsoring a angel heart pajama project CROPPED logocollection of pajamas and age appropriate books for the Angel Heart Pajama Project (AHPP). This Tucson based 501(c)(3) helps children in state custody. These children often go to foster-care facilities in just the clothes they are wearing. The AHPP transfers pj’s and books to the Green Valley and Sahuarita Food Banks and Valley Assistance Services for the kids going into foster care in the local area.

The Outreach Committee will be collecting new pajamas for children from ages 0 -14, (sizes 0-XXL) and children’s books for ages infant – teens. Cushy pillows are also on their Wish List. There might be some good pre-holiday sales for early shoppers. Donations will be accepted starting in November, locations to be announced.

HONOR FLIGHT — (Oct. 20, 2022) There is still time to write a “thank you for your service” letter to one or more of clipart_HonorFlight_logothe 68 Native American veterans who will be going on the Honor Flight to Washington, DC from November 10-13. While there, the veterans will visit the many monuments honoring veterans of all wars.

Please begin your letters (or notes) with “Dear Veteran”, “Dear Hero” or a similar salutation. Drop letters in the collection box at 2719 E. Sawyer Road by Saturday, October 29.

The “Mail Call” letters given to the veterans on their flight home are often cherished by the veterans, many of whom believe their service was not appreciated by their fellow Americans.


SCHOOL TEACHERS’ SUPPLY SHOWER

Each teacher received two large bags, one with a variety of school supplies and the other with more practical items — Kleenex, paper towels, copy paper, and wipes. They were served carrot cake and Arnold Palmers while they celebrated.

This was the first time an outside group had ever “showered” them with gifts and the teachers really appreciated it. They were very surprised at the variety and number of gifts they received.
