I received an e-mail today from Scott Weinstein of www.skippypbbq.com to make me aware of a Welcome Home! event for our troops serving in the armed forces that is being held in Houston on July 15. I applaud what he is doing and wanted to share it with everyone. Contact Scott if you need more specifics.
Once again we are on track to provide a free meal for the men and women at Ellington Field in Houston. These hard working troops represent the Air National Guard, Army National Guard, and US Coast Guard. Many have recently returned from Iraq while many of their friends are still there. The Welcome Home! event is scheduled for July 15 - just a month away.
We need your support to make this event as successful as the 2005 Welcome Home! event. While Operation BBQ For Our Troops has already received a large donation to help cover food costs, we are a long way from making this a free service to the base. Please consider a donation to help us help those who serve us each day.
A link for donations has been set up and an account is in process at a local bank. If you would prefer to donate an item ‘in kind’ we can happily provide you a list of items needed to support this event. If you have any questions whatsoever, please to not hesitate to ask.
