JOIN US FOR PREP AND ASSEMBLY DAYS -- THIS WEEKEND!
Volunteers! I wanted to send out a quick reminder that we have back-to-back work days at the armory this weekend:
Saturday, April 21 -- "Prep Day" starting at 9 am and finishing up at Noon. We have much to do to get ready for Sunday!
Sunday, April 22 -- Our first full Assembly Day of the 2012 Patriotic Drive -- 9 am to 4 pm.
Shifts on Sunday are 9 am to Noon and 1 pm to 4 pm. You can sign up to work one or the other or both!
(Keep reading to find out about our new Lunch Program!)
If you would like to volunteer please email our Volunteer Coordinator, Penny: OpGratVolunteer1@yahoo.com. Write "Operation Gratitude Volunteer" in the subject line and let her know which shift(s) you'd like to work and if you're coming with a group, how many people will be with you. If you need the address and directions to the armory, Penny will send that to you along with all the other information you'll need.
We have activities at the armory appropriate for all adults. We welcome children ages 12 and older; those ages 12-16 must have a responsible adult with transportation on the premises at all times. Due to insurance, liability and safety concerns, we must strictly adhere to these rules. No exceptions.
Whether you're signing up to help in the morning or later on in the afternoon on Sunday, we hope you will plan to join us for lunch because the Lunch Trucks are coming!
To start off our brand-new lunch program, our first day with a full line-up of Lunch Trucks will be this Sunday!
We are excited to let you know that not only will we have a great variety of delicious food to choose from, but also: 10% from all lunch purchases will be donated back to Operation Gratitude!
So our lunch program will now be a great fundraiser, too!
Each truck has designed a "Lunch Special" just for Operation Gratitude and will still offer their regular menu. These are the trucks that are coming and their Lunch Specials for Sunday:
1. Komodo: Special--$6.00: 2 tacos and a drink
2. Lomo Arigato: Special--$7.00: Three-quarter portion of any entree plus a drink
3. Philly Please Cheese Steaks: Special--$7.00: Any half-sandwich and fries
4. Canter's Deli: Special--$7.50: Grilled cheese w/ potato salad or slaw, plus pickle and soda OR 1/2 pastrami or turkey or corned beef sandwich with soda
You can see the full menus on their websites. We are grateful to each of these companies for their generosity to our cause -- please visit their Facebook and/or Twitter pages to join us in thanking them for their support!
We hope you'll help us spread the word to your family, friends and co-workers and invite them to come for lunch, and to stay and volunteer, too!
I look forward to seeing many of you this weekend!
