OUR LADY OF PEACE PARISH PROJECT
The OLP Knights of Columbus wish to thank the Parish Community for donating five filled boxes, plus over 25 filled paper grocery bags, of supplies and more than $1,900.00 of contributions for
the November 2012 Operation Buckeye Colletion. The supplies and contributions were delivered
to the Operation Buckeye Headquarters on November 4th and 11th, 2012.
Thank you for your generous response.
As we continue to pray for peace in the world and the safety of our troops. Our Lady of Peace will, for the 5th year, be participating in OPERATION BUCKEYE.
OPERATION BUCKEYE was formed with the sole purpose of sending boxes to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan as a way to thank them for their efforts and to bring a touch of home to them. The boxes contain food items, toiletries, entertainment, hygiene items and letters of appreciation all wrapped with good wishes of love and support for the wonderful job they are doing.
The physical conditions many of our troops endure are difficult and they are separated from their loved ones for long periods of time. OPERATION BUCKEYE hopes to bring a touch of home and lift the spirits of the troops. Click here for a list of items you might donate.
OPERATION BUCKEYE provides caring civilians the opportunity to show their appreciation and respect to the men and women of our military stationed in hostile and remote regions of the world.
If you have a family member or friend stationed in Iraq or Afghanistan, please forward their name and APO# to: Wayne and Mary King at (614) 268-3355 or firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to include them in this project.
We welcome any school or youth group wishing to be a part of this effort. We encourage you to post this list in your workplace and give others an opportunity to send their appreciation.
