Help with New York Guard appreciation packages


The New Y.ork Guard Association wants to put together care packages for State Guard soldiers who are currently on active duty working with the National Guard on Operation COVID-19.

The association is seeking donations to make the small care packages to show its appreciation for the soldiers’ hard work and dedication. Packages will also be sent to those working behind the scenes as well, who are not on state active duty, but are volunteering their time to the Guard.

If you or a company that you work with or work for are willing to make a monetary donation, or to donate items such as chocolates, cookies, game cards, candies, that would be greatly appreciated.

Association members are planning on making stickers that read “Thanks for your Service, Compliments NYG Association and company name” to be placed on the boxes.

To donate items or money for the “morale boosting packages” send an email to admin@newyorkguardassociation.org.
