MILITARY APPRECIATION PROJECT (MAP)

Donations Needed Anytime ~ Bring to the Office
MAP was initiated last year by Michaela Spangler for her Girl Scout Gold Award. While she has moved on to college, the program continues. Our goal is to reach out to the active duty military of our parish to assure them that they are loved and appreciated here at home. We send them care packages several times throughout the year.
If your loved one is serving in the military and is a parishioner of All Saints or one of the Dearborn County parishes, please contact us so that we can include them in this program.
We are still accepting donations to keep the program running. In addition to prayers and monetary donations which are so important, we are accepting the following: powdered drink packets, beef jerky, microwavable skyline chili pouches, gum, mints, protein bars, trail mix, and chapstick. Thank you for your continued prayers and support of our troops and of this program. Contact Lisa Spangler at (812).212.5683 or lisaspangler6@gmail.com with any questions.
