Nice windfall for TSAC!

Recently we were contacted by Nancy, a generous woman from Golden who follows Pinecam.
Feeling the Troop Support Action Committee (TSAC) is a worthwhile effort, she encouraged her service sorority sisters from Epsilon Sigma Alpha (ESA) to
donate to TSAC at their local annual meeting.

This ESA group, named Chi Kappa, hosted four metro council member units recently and collected $120 in cash and several boxes of goods needed by the troops.
The cash will cover postage for at least 6 Postal Flat Rate boxes carrying goodies to the Troops!

This weekend Nancy met up with us for a hug and to pass along the donations.
What a great surprise.
The wonderful donations will be shipped to the troops in Afghanistan before Christmas.
What a thoughtful service organization!

Nancy used to live up here in the mountains on a ranch between Evergreen and Conifer.
That's how she found Pinecam.
She does not post but still reads the site.
She loves the mountain photos!

By the way, along with local projects, ESA has this year donated more than $2 million to St. Jude's Children's Cancer Research Hospital - Colorado.
St. Jude's is their international service project.
Way to go, Ladies.

Here is a photo which shows several of the items donated to TSAC.
Tucked in on the left side of the photo were TWO boxes of Nature Valley Fruit and Nut bars!
This type of "energy bar" is one of the most highly requested items that TSAC ships to our supported units as they fit perfectly into BDU (Battle Dress Utility) pants pockets and provide quick nutrition in the field - especially on night missions!
Other snack items in this lot will bring a lot of smiles from the Troops in the newest Chinook Helicopter unit just moving into their base in Afghanistan!

If anyone out there wonders what specific items are most prized by our Troops in Afghanistan, here is a link to that list: ... 0&t=229882
