Treats for the Troops! The Holidays are Coming...

This weekend, ASY homefront group Operation Pinecone, will begin its holiday collections drive and is planning three packing parties to prepare donations for shipment to our troops stationed in Iraq, and Afghanistan, and delivery to local military hospitals.

The first packing party will be on Saturday, November 22 from 9:00am to 1:00pm at the Dulles South Multipurpose Center in South Riding, VA.

Operation Pinecone is a grassroots, non-profit organization based in South Riding, Virginia, and consists of volunteers who assemble gift and care packages for service members primarily stationed in Iraq, and Afghanistan. The organization also brings comfort items and offers various methods of support to the wounded and ill, their families, and loved ones located at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. and Bethesda National Naval Medical Center located in Bethesda, MD.
