From Joann Sullivan, Kristy Nedrow and Denny Dewitt, co-organizers, Wolverine Lake Community “Miracle Box” Packing Party:
The generosity of the lakes area community and its compassion and admiration for our military were on full display at the Oct. 15 “Miracle Box” Packing Party for the troops and military working dogs on behalf of Desert Angels, Inc. and Desert K-9s.
Individuals, the business community and local groups donated a variety of items in such quantities that 522 care packages were shipped overseas by 200 volunteers in just over two hours — a Desert Angels packing party record!
Donations also included money toward shipping costs and the purchase of K-9 protective gear packages. Shipping for all 522 care packages was covered and Desert K-9s will be able to purchase nine K-9 packages.
On behalf of Desert Angels/Desert K-9s, our sincere thanks to Multi-Lakes Conservation Association for allowing the use of their facilities, and to the hundreds of indivuals, businesses and groups whose donations and volunteer time sent necessities and comforts to the men, women and K-9s serving our country so far from our shores.
