Carnival Blog

Have a Loved One in the Service?

The 2016 Carnival theme is “God Bless Our Troops.”  We will be sending gift boxes (value-~$100, tax receipts available) to our troops located only in Afghanistan, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait and other Middle East countries.  There will be a booth/table to make donations to this cause during Carnival week. 

We are partnering with “Operation Yellow Ribbon of South Jersey (OYRSJ),” as they will be supplying the shipping method & cost.  We are requesting you provide us with your loved one’s name, APO, their return date from service in the Middle East, and your name and email address.  OYRSJ only deals with those on active military duty in the Middle East (no private or sub-contractors).  As a bonus, OYRSJ will keep these names and addresses for future mailings at their cost during your loved one’s deployment.  We will compile a list on a first come, first serve basis.  Please call/email, Elaine Welsh, 856-786-1190/ elainewm@comcast.net to register your loved one.
