The packing party will be July 22, 2012, for "Chilling Out!" It will be held at the American Legion in Davenport, Iowa, address 702 W. 35th St.
I've ordered 100 boxes and might have all the customs forms filled out with the addresses before the party.
I've already had donations of pillow cases, Crystal Lite, snacks. The Paul Mitchell Academy is collecting girly stuff; a local Walgreen's is collecting items. I've submitted a request to the local Sam's Club.
The Academy and Walgreen's are both sending volunteers, plus the community will come out for this. Here's the flyer I've put out here.
