McKinney Citizens Encouraged to Participate in Operation Appreciation

Northern Collin County military service men and women serving overseas can expect a better Independence Day thanks to Operation Appreciation.  A class project of the Leadership McKinney Class of 2008, the program provides a little bit of hometown comfort to the service personnel.  Operation Appreciation originally served only McKinney military serving overseas in harm’s way but the group is now reaching out to the communities of Anna, Blue Ridge, Celina, Farmersville, Melissa, Princeton and Prosper to let them know their community supports them and values their service to our country.

Opportunities for the public to participate in the program are still available until Monday,  June 6.  Operation Appreciation volunteers will be packing boxes on June 9 and will need to have all items purchased prior to that date.  Gift or cash donations are welcome. 

Non-perishable items needed include:

    Action Movies (DVD’s)
    Air Pumps for Inflatable Balls
    Audio Books on CD
    Baby Powder
    Cool Packs
    Cotton Swabs
    Dart Boards
    Gold Bond Foot Powder
    Hand or Body Lotion
    Hand Sanitizer
    Magazines – ESPN, Hunting, National Geographic, Sports Illustrated
    Music CD’s
    Phone Cards
    Soccer Balls
    T-shirts – Brown or Green

Checks may be made payable to “McKinney Chamber of Commerce” with the reference Operation Appreciation in the memo line.  The public can either drop checks off at the McKinney Chamber of Commerce or mail them to McKinney Chamber of Commerce, 2150 S. Central Expressway, Suite 150, McKinney, TX  75070.  For information on the Operation Appreciation program, call the McKinney Chamber of Commerce at 972-542-0163 or “Like” them on Facebook at Operation Appreciation – McKinney, Texas.
