Because our deployed troops can’t stop, we won’t either. We have decided to still assemble care packages to support those deployed in harms way. Given the current restrictions on large events and for the safety of the public, we are altering our assembly to a closed event limited to a trained OWLFH team only. We understand that our assemblies are a way for the local community to come together in a day of volunteering but we know the concerns about COVID-19. The health and safety of our community and volunteers is utmost in our minds. So we hope to be able to see you all at our Holiday assembly.
We still need some “Virtual Volunteering” in the collection of items, making of Thank You cards and monetary donations for shipping costs. See details below.
