Thursday, November 27, 2014 N/Warren Town and County News Page Nine Care Package for Iowa Troops In the month of November we celebrate Thanksgiving and Veterans Day. With this is mind, students at Apple Tree Adventures sent a care package to our deployed Iowa National Guard troops to thank them for their service to our nation. We know that after a full day at school our students enjoy spending time reading, playing games, doing word puzzles, listening to music and having a snack. It is our thought that our troops might enjoy these things as well. In addition to cards created by the students, we shipped two boxes of paperback books, word puzzles, card games, ink pens, batteries, snacks and personal care items. We are certain this small gesture will bring a smile to their faces, fill their hearts with pride and confirm they are indeed appreciated for the noble sacrifices they make for our nation. HOLIDAY FOOD BOXES Norwalk residents and Red Cross Volunteers Jane and Jim Braswell, Pat and Bob Burch, Dennis Keller, Bill Kees and Jerry Brehmer joined with Scott Havens of ScotCs Foods to fill holiday food boxes for military families at Camp Dodge through the Warrior and Family Readiness Group. Havens graciously partnered with the Service to Armed Forces group to help pro- vide holiday meals to military families who might not otherwise be able to have a special meal. After the food was picked up at Scott's,boxes for 25 families were filled at Red Cross headquarters in Des Moines and then delivered to Iowa National Guard Headquarters at Camp Dodge for distribution. Another 25 boxes will be filled and distributed for Christmas. The American Red Cross has been closely aligned with the military since the Civil War and is providing service to military personnel all over the world. Local volunteers are most active at Camp Dodge and the VA Hospital. i i i!i!i!i ilili i!i!iiiii!iiiiii!iiii!ili:i i Staff photos by Lori Ford.
