PBYR proudly participated in the Greenwood Elementary School Community Service Program on Feb. 9, 2018. This was our 2nd participation and we have been invited back for next year! The student and parents were again super and they were very generous with the following donations:
- $400.00 Holiday Gift cards
- $400.00 Cub Gift cards
- The students wrote letters and drew beautiful pictures for service members.
The gift card donations will be used to assist service members and their families and such donated gifts are very helpful to the PBYR mission. The Family Assistance Center will locate a deployed service member or Chaplain to receive the pictures to distribute.
“Si” , a 5th grader served as our assistant and he did a super job at the event!!
UPDATE: April 27, 2018
We were able to visit with fellow vendors and shared several tables with the Heinzen-Ditter VFW, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve and the American Legion. There was a light stream of folks visiting our tables.
Several people decided to join our network on Saturday and will be added to our mail distribution list soon. We received a very small amount of donations, however the real purpose of the event is for PBYR to express appreciation to Vets and Service Members and support our partner Home Depot in the event. Jim Heimerl expertly demonstrated flag folding and gave some history about handling the flag.
