We all want to help, but sometimes we don’t know how. And more often than not, a small gesture means a lot.

Wrap a Care Package for a Soldier:
Friday is Veteran’s Day and the organizers of Operation Support Our Troops are encouraging residents of Westchester and Fairfield Counties to remember the troops serving in Afghanistan by writing a supportive letter or collecting care items for
holiday care packages to be compiled and sent on December 4th from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at St. Augustine’s Church in Larchmont NY. This is the ninth “Support Our Troops Drive” organized at St. Augustine’s Church and the goal is to send over 2,000 packages this year. More info: carepackagedrive.com
