MooreMart Update

Greetings
 MooreMart volunteers packed and shipped 4,589 care packages as
 well as Humanitarian aid to local schools, orphanages and clinics on
 November 12th, 2011 at the Nashua National Guard Armory.
 On November 12th MooreMart volunteers surpassed their previous
 record of 3,911 care packages shipped in 2010.

 The care packages were shipped to 1,840 members of the armed
 services from New Hampshire serving in the Middle East, to members of the armed services from throughout the United States serving in Iraq and
 Afghanistan, to retired veterans residing at the Tilton retirement Home, veterans in transition staying at Liberty House in Manchester, Buckingham
 Place and Dalianis House in Nashua as well as the Veterans Hospital in
 Manchester.

 MooreMart also shipped care packages to hospitalized Veterans at
 Walter Reed Hospital and Bethesda medical Center in Washington DC as well as  to the Chaplains Office to be distributed to orphanages throughout Iraq and
Afghanistan, the MWR (Chaplain’s Office) in  Iraq and Afghanistan to be distributed to any serviceman or woman who arrived in the Middle East during Christmas week to insure that they have a care package and Christmas Stocking waiting for them.

 Novembers packing event brings the total number of care packages
 shipped by MooreMart to 43,417 and Humanitarian Aid to Schools and Orphanages  in Iraq and Afghanistan to 4.1 tons. MooreMart’s 2012 packing events are currently scheduled to be held
 at the Nashua National Guard Armory on:
2012 Packing dates:

Date                            Theme
 16-18 Feb 2012           S ‘Mores

 17-19 May 2012          4th of July and summer snacks
 9-11 Aug 2012            Soccer balls      

 8-10 Nov 2012            Christmas stockings

 Volunteer:
 If you and/or your group would like to volunteer for a particular
 Packing event please let us know as soon as practical so we can
 reserve a volunteer slot for you. We will be sending out reminders as to each packing event roughly 2 months before the event. We usually max out on
 volunteer slots roughly 10 days before the event.

  Our next packing event will be our February 16 -18th event at the Nashua National Guard Armory. We will be sending out a reminder relative to the event. This year we would like to be able to send a S ‘Mores package to every individual on our mailing list as well as to local schools in Iraq and Afghanistan as the S ‘more shipment is one of the most popular shipments to the children living next to our military installations.

Donation of supplies:
 As you can see each packing event has a theme and we will follow
 up with a suggested packing list of supplies to make your shopping trip a little
easier if you wish to donate supplies.
 The drop off date for supplies is always the first day of the 3
 day packing event (Thursday) from 3pm to 7pm.  The reason for having a
 Thursday drop off day is it provides us with an opportunity to inventory the
 supplies and then, if needed, go shopping Friday to ensure that we have the
 necessary supplies to accommodate the requests we have received
 from our troops.
 Activities:

 The Telegraph is sponsoring a 5K run on April 28, 2012 with the
 proceeds being donated to MooreMart!

All I can say is WOW!!!!
Thank you so very much for your very generous Christmas stocking care packages. They came in 2 pallets and were delivered to me right at the hospital where I work. Needless to say it was all we could talk about yesterday!  I have turned over all of the Christmas stockings to our Morale, Welfare and Recreation Committee (MWR).  They are going to distribute the stockings to the staff  a bit closer to Christmas.  We have saved out many to give to our American Soldiers who will be here as patients over the holiday season as well. Admittedly I peeked in a few and was completely overwhelmed by your creativity, thoughtfulness and generosity.
I will be sending pictures when the stockings are distributed.
Again, many, many thanks for your thoughtfulness, prayers and support.
Sincerely,
Lynne Ferrari Blankenbeker, CDR, USN, NC NATO Role 3, MMU Kandahar, Afghanistan

    I would also like to thank you for the wonderful stockings!  We are so excited to pass these out to our Role 3 members during our Christmas Party in a few weeks!  The delivery truly was the talk of the shop yesterday!  Your support and display of thoughtfulness is so greatly appreciated and needed for all of the troops here.  

With gratitude,
