How Can I Help?
Glad You Asked!
You might notice a family type atmosphere during Tuesday night packing. It is not unusual to have 3 and sometimes 4 generations represented.
We at OHG are frequently asked if we could use some help or assistance. In a nutshell: yes! We can ALWAYS use your help. Your help could come in many forms: Labor. An extra hand or two is always appreciated. Money: We spend money as quickly as we get it. The postage on a care package is more than $9.00 each. The average value of the contents is around $25-$30.....We have sent over 2600 (11\19\07). Items: We can always use items to stuff our care packages. We provide an extensive list of suggestions on this site under "Supplies Needed". Administrative and PR help: We are a 100% volunteer group, but we get paid...every time we hear a thanks from a soldier or a family, it's worth a million bucks to us! We could always use help in approaching businesses, churches, ect., and just getting the word out. Finally, no matter how you decide to help, we encourage you to visit us on Tuesday evenings, 3:30-6:30ish at Mayo HS, room #1-118 (near door #5). Our books are always open, but the main reason for the invitation is to meet some of the best young adults on the planet and be reassured that the future will be in good hands. Call me at 507-261-7566. GJK
