I know that all the recent political hoopla has downgraded the compassion of many. Even if you are feeling Katrina-fatigue, there is still a way to help in a different way.
Keystone Soldiers has secured a Philly Drop Off Center that is accepting donations for all the things that the Soldiers, Marines, Sailors and Airmen need.
Here is the List:
Antibacterial wipes and soaps
Paper towels, sponges & shop towels
Band-aids & first aid supplies
Neosporin or antibiotic cream
Individual size snacks, candy, and anything that does not require cooking
Water & Gatorade
Towels & wash cloths
Travel size toiletries
If you are in the Philadelphia area, you can take these items to:
B'nai B'rith International
Northeastern Field Office
1420 Walnut Street, Suite 720
Philadelphia, PA 19102
(More locations may be added as the day goes on)
Those of you that want to help the men and women who are wading around in that nasty latrine water helping our fellow Americans in New Orleans... There is a PayPal donation button on Keystone's page that makes it easy to help out!
Lordzmom (who runs Keystone and is a military mom for those of you that didn't know) works tirelessly for the troops and really appreciates all those that have aided her efforts! Thanks Lordzmom, you are a tireless advocate for the troops, an incredible resource for their families and an inspiration to so many! Good luck with this supply drive!
