2014 Christmas Project



2014 Christmas Project
......
Every year, the Texas Boomers contributes to a local charity
to help make Christmas a little more special for families in need.
,,,...
This year we will be donating gift cards to the
Disabled American Veterans (DAV) organization
which will be distributed to the families of disabled
veterans right here in Texas.
......
These gift cards will enable families to purchase a Christmas dinner,
toys or clothing for their children
or whatever they have need of during this holiday season.
...
Please bring a Gift Card to the Rally
from Wal-Mart, Target or HEB Grocery Store
to the rally where it will be placed on a Christmas Tree
with a Christmas card containing a personalized greeting or message
from your family to their family.
...
* * * The amount of the gift card is your blessing to this project * * *

......
...
A representative from the DAV in San Antonio
will come to AlamoFiesta RV Resort on Saturday
to receive our presentation.
.........
We have granted them permission to take photos
of the presentation which they will use on their website
and print in their monthly magazine and other publications.
...
If you are not able to attend the Christmas Rally this year,
but would like to participate in this project,
please purchase a gift card(s) and mail to my home address by Dec 5th
and I will add it with the other cards for the presentation.
......
......
contact me at sandycreekmore@texasboomers.net for more information
or mail by December 5th to

13010 Wincrest Court
Cypress, Texas 77429

This is absolutely a super endeavor Sandy. Hat's off to you for doing this.

One question would it be better to bring several smaller gift cards to help more veterans or one larger one. i.e. 4 $25 cards vs 1 $100 one.

Don,

Thank you, Don. I saw something on TV/FB or somewhere about the families of wounded warriors and it sparked the idea of "how" we can bless them. I pitched the idea to Amber and together we started investigating the potential organizations that reach out especially at Christmas time. We talked to a number of different worthy organizations, but eventually settled on the DAV because we wanted to bless families right here in Texas and the DAV in San Antonio was able to fulfill that request.

I would say 4 smaller amount gift cards. The DAV will divide them up equally between a number of families depending upon how many cards ($ wise) we contribute to the cause.

Sandy

You might put out another post on this to be sure everybody sees it and does not forget to buy their cards!!! I agree--several smaller ($25) cards are better than a large one. I think it might be a good idea to put the amount on the card with a magic marker or something.

Yes, it's on my list today to send out reminders for the gift cards and
YES YES YES
the amount needs to be written on the cards in magic marker
The DAV will be dividing the gift cards between several families so they really need to know how much to divide equally!

Sandy, thank you for doing this. You are such a special lady, always thinking of others, especially vets. Wish we could be there but, you know how things happen.

Thanks again for thinking of the disabled vets.

You, Rusty and, all the Boomers have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Jerry, Janell and, Gus.

There are several postings of our
Christmas 2014 Project
...
"just conversation" here on iRV2
and
on our Texas Boomers RV Club
Facebook Page

Every Christmas, the Texas Boomers adopts a community project to be blessing to those around us.
...
This year we selected the Disabled American Veterans
......
Everyone who participated bought gift cards from
Wal-Mart - Target - HEB grocery stores
and mailed to us or brought to the Christmas Rally.
...
On Saturday morning, December 13th, a contingent of
personnel from the DAV Post # 114 in Helotes, Texas
came to AlamoFiesta RV Park and shared the great things the DAV does for our wounded vets and their families.
...
$1400 IN GIFT CARDS
WAS PRESENTED
TO COMMANDER LOUIS CORTEZ
...
Thank you, Texas Boomers, for your faithful
generosity to reach out
to share our blessings so others can be blessed!
