On Sunday November 27, 2011 from 11:00AM to 3:00PM we will be conducting a “Cookies for Camouflage” caign at American Legion Post 80 (downstairs), 566 Enfield Street, Enfield, CT. 

Our goal is to collect as many home baked or store bought goodies as we can to send to our troops in time for the holiday season (these will be sent to our Enfield deployed for them to share).  Please remember that chocolate chips melt in the desert heat (but I’m told that m&;m’s make the transition just fine!).  We will be boxing any goodies up right on site for mailing immediately following the event, so please have your donation in either a small box or bagged in a Ziploc-type bag for easier packing.  Our service members would love it if your donation included a small handwritten  note telling them where the goodies are from…notes from home go a long way in maintaining the morale of our soldiers!

If any civic group is interested in assisting with postage costs, it would be most welcome!!!  “Pennies for Postage” is a good slogan that works for children, and all funds go directly into the postage fund for the Enfield Hooah site to benefit our soldiers who are deployed.

If you are interested in helping, please contact me at the above listed contact information.  Thank you for your support of our brave men and women in uniform!

***if you know someone with ties to Enfield and would like to add him/her to our cookie list and/or the care package list, please contact me so we can start sending goodies from home to them as soon as possible***

 update for 2011's Cookies for Camouflage caign: 

we collected 551 pounds of baked goods in the four hours we were at American Legion Post 80's hall on 11/27, and over the next two days (and four post office trips) 52 boxes were mailed to 17 recipients.  Thank you so much, everyone, for your generosity, love, support, donations, and time- and special thanks to Tony Torres and the members of Post 80 for their hospitality- not even did we use their hall, but they fed us as well :-). 



In 2010 we ran the first "Cookies for Camouflage" caign and collected 346 pounds of baked goods for our troops:
