LAWRENCE COUNTY REPUBLICAN WOMEN
In past years, Lawrence County Republican Women has supported our troops with care packages. We have collected items from our club members and from the community, and boxed and shipped the items overseas to our troops. It has been a great project, but very labor intensive and costly.
I recently found a better way to do the same thing. The Avon USO2GO program sends the troops five full-sized toiletry products (two deodorants, one lip moisture therapy, one shampoo and one conditioner). Of the $10 cost per kit, Avon donates $4 to the USO for emergency relief, family assistance and entertainment tours. Avon handles all of the shipping and handling.
This is a fabulous public relations project, as we put notices in our local papers requesting community support. It also confirms and demonstrates to folks in our neighborhood that Republican women do more than get Republicans elected. We are also actively providing service to our community, state and national endeavors.
