To honor our troops for Memorial Day, the Deacons are hosting a donation drive for Operation Troop Appreciation. OTA is a local organization dedicated to the active and veteran members of our Armed Forces by providing them with items that contribute to their morale and well-being.

OTA moved into a new facility this year and depleted their inventory of supplies prior to their move. Thus, this year, the need for donations is greater than ever. Your support will be greatly appreciated.

All donations are used for OTA's "Active Duty Wish List" and "Veteran Welcome Home Programs."

We are collecting various cleaning, laundry, bedding, and kitchen supplies, as well as entertainment, food and hygiene items. Click here for the complete list.

Homemade Greeting Cards
OTA includes a collection of homemade cards inside each donation box sent to troops. These cards are treasured by the troops. Your cards are welcomed along with your donations. There will be a manila envelope inside of each camouflage collection box for you to place your cards.

Cards and notes to troops can include "thanks for your service", "we appreciate your sacrifice for our country", "our prayers and thoughts are with you", drawings with a simple "Thank You", and any other comment of appreciation for being there for our country.

Monetary Donations
We also welcome checks made payable to Westminster Presbyterian Church with "Treasures for Troops" on the memo line. Or, you can donate online. Please be sure to put Treasures for Troops in the "optional memo" field.

Thank you for your generosity.
