A Note From Rabbi Stanway
I have a colleague who is a chaplain on the USS Abraham Lincoln. They have an extended deployment and they are feeling really run down. So, Beth Miriam, how about we brighten up a sailor's day, especially since we are entering the holiday season. See the picture below to see what they need. You bring it to the temple, I will mail it.
Looking for an easy way to support the troops? The USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN just got extended, again, and could use some love to get them through this seemingly never ending deployment. Please see below for ideas (they’re specifically looking for holiday decorations) but you can also never go wrong with:
Toiletries (for women too)
Non-chocolate candy (chocolate rarely survives the shipping process)
Games (cards, Uno, old school stuff)
Used video games (they have a variety on consoles onboard)
Cards (especially from kids)
Seeds (sunflower in shells and other)
Stocking stuffer type small gifts
I recommend using the Post Office’s Flat Rate boxes but it’s also really easy to ship stuff to Navy ships via Amazon.
