Peoria Republican Women gear up for "Operation Santa" workshop!

From Peoria County Republican Women President Carol Hornickle:

We will be at Republican Headquarters at 8835 N. Knoxville Avenue, Suite 8 from 9:30 A.M. til 4:00 P.M. Thursday, October 1st cutting, pressing and sewing stockings.

Come with scissors, fabric, sewing machine or just yourself to help us on our goal of supplying stockings to our troops all over the world.

The total goal is 35,000 stockings! Thank goodness WE don't have to do that many!

We are accepting checks made out to Operation Santa as well. This helps with filling and shipping those stockings. If you have travel-sized shampoos, conditioners, soaps, toothpaste, lotions or the like, please bring them.

Rather than you buying items, please consider writing a check. The Opearion Santa buyers can purchase tax-free and in bulk so it is much more efficient for them to do the buying.

Our deadline this year for getting items and stockings completed is November 1st. The stuffing and shipping will be completed before Thanksgiving. Please participate in some way.

Also, if you have a loved one who is in the Armed Services, please forward the complete shipping info to us. Their unit will receive stockings. It's an awesome gift to give to someone important to you.

Home of the free....because of the brave,
Let's not forget that!

Carol

Thanks!
Carol Hornickle
