“Operation Toy Drop 2016” – Christmas Breakfast & Toy Drive

Dec 02, 16 “Operation Toy Drop 2016” – Christmas Breakfast & Toy Drive

Posted by in Featured Events

      It’s time for our 7th Annual Holiday breakfast. With a food buffet & live music. Saturday December 10th, at the Veterans Activity Center, 2184 Pond Road Ronkonkoma For a few years, we would use FD halls and posts for big breakfast events, charge door donations, it was a lot of work and people just don’t have much time or money around the holidays to spend out of their family. So, last year we started with a causal drop off event at the VAC, the VAC is the Home to Boots on the Ground NY family, so why not again just be Home for the Holidays? All donations go towards providing Christmas gifts, food and provide emergency funds and to our Veteran Support Program account, which provides needed items for local Veterans. Doors will open 0930 hrs and food will be available till 2pm, and we will be there collecting till 4pm that day. Live Music by Dennis O’Donnell. This will also be a collection point for Toys and gifts for our Veteran families that we will adopt for this holiday season. The Dear Santa wish lists of the children are posted in a separate picture album located on our Facebook page but any toys or gift cards for children of all ages are accepted, as well as clothing and footwear. (www.facebook.com/bootsonthegroundny ). At this event, we also are collecting items for hospitalized Veterans (such as socks, underwear, sweatpants, sweatshirts and t-shirts) & nonperishable & frozen foods for Our Veteran Food Pantry as well as items to ship to Our Troops with our Military Care Package program. If anyone would like to provide any prepared meals, baked good or snacks please feel free to bring them along… We are also still looking for any food distributors, grocery or restaurant/delis that would be willing to donate food. Just so you know, no food from the event gets wasted, left over prepared foods get delivered to Veteran housing & to the VA Hospital in...
