Operation Bartow Cares New website

They have anew website! - From the OBC myspace profile "Operation Bartow Cares is our way of sending some "home" to those serving in our military. We need your help to make this successful! The Bartow Business Association has formed Operation Bartow Cares to provide a means for businesses and citizens alike to reach out and support our military. If you have a loved one currently serving in the military, please send us their name, location, mailing address and how long they are currently scheduled to be at that location. Due to the length of time it takes to ship packages to military personnel, we will only ship packages to those who will be at their current location for more than three weeks. Are you wondering how you can help? We need businesses, classes, organizations and families to “adopt” a name and send over letters, cards or care packages. We also will be coordinating multiple care packages and need items donated for those care packages. Finally, we need others who are interested in sponsoring the shipping costs of these packages. A list of items we need is listed in our blog. This drive will end November 30, 2007, so all items must be received by that date! Questions? Call Jennifer Nelson at (770) 387-9072 or e-mail at "
