2017 Christmas Gifts to Soldiers: Saturday, December 9


I can’t believe another year has gone by! It’s been a hectic on at home-base—I was laid off last April, and have been building my own business at home. Warrior Watch has been on the back burner for the last 6 months, but we are STILL here, and warming back up!

Care Package Christmas Gifts to U.S. Servicemen & Women!!


Saturday, December 9, 2017
1701 E. Main Street
Urbana, IL 61802

We will send everyone on our list a box of great holiday goodies: t-shirts, good coffee, home baked goods, socks, games, and letters from children.

YOU can help by:

•    Purchasing a gift for a soldier, and bringing it to the event or dropping it off beforehand. To arrange pickup, email lori.weidert@gmail.com

•    Baking some cookies or other treats

•    Showing up on the 9th with Christmas wrap, scotch tape, scissors, and a smile

•    Clicking on the button on the right, and sponsor the cost of shipping 1 box

I have downloadable, printable flyers if you are interested in learning more, or sharing this information with your coworkers, church, scouts, VFW, or any other organization.

As always, if you’re not from Central Illinois, you can still participate in the merrymaking: If you’d like to send a box of gifts to a soldier, we’ll give you a name, address, some gift ideas, and shipping advice. Many have already started their boxes.
