20 Nov Care Packages for Dark Horse Soldiers: Sunday 24NOV13 1300
If you’ve chosen to adopt a soldier from the Army unit we’ve partnered with you should have received an email giving you your solider’s name and email address. Hopefully by now you’ve sent them an email saying hello and introducing yourself. Now the next step is that we’re getting together to put together care packages to be sent to them in time for the Holidays.
We will be meeting at the gym this Sunday at 1pm to put together care packages to be mailed out to our guys. There will also be open gym going on during this time period.
Even if you don’t have a soldier you’re welcome to come down and help put together care packages.
You have a couple options:
1) Put together a care package. Ask your soldier what he/she would like. Keep in mind they are CrossFitters.
2) Pitch in money to purchase equipment. We are working with Rogue Fitness to purchase and ship out as much equipment for their base gym as possible. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.
What should you get?
Just bring a box/envelope to ship over and whatever you’re going to put in it. I spoke with their Company Commander and the guys aren’t in dire need of any certain thing. However, one thing that goes a long way is some homemade goodies. So if you’re good at making some cookies/brownies etc feel free to make a bunch of them to be sent over. Just keep in mind, you need to make sure they can last the journey over to Afghanistan. Also don’t forget they are CrossFitters, so any swag would be an awesome thing for them as well. See you guys Sunday!
