We are writing to you because of your past support of ProjectMOT. As you may know we sent almost 100 holiday care packages to our deployed Jewish troops last year. This year for Passover we sent 114. All were well received and enjoyed by our brave heroes in their various parts of the world.
If you have a deployed serviceman or woman who will be away during the holidays, please send us their military address so we can send them a care package.
We are now preparing the High Holiday packages which we will be sending at the end of August, and have orders for 80 at this point. We already have blank greeting cards for them to send home, some candy and cookies, but we really want to make these boxes special.
We have a web page with information about what we are doing and our wish list and invite you to have a visit: www.rimmon.com/ProjectMOT.htm
Our Rosh Hashanah Wish List: (Items must fit into boxes 8 ½ x 11 inches)
Elite/Osem/Streits cookies and cakes
All kosher food and snack items such as candies , bags of dried apple slices or snacks; small plastic jars of honey; individual bags of coffee, teas, hot chocolate
Any small Judaica items
Bentchers and small Jewish calendars
Personal-sized hygiene items
