National Veteran’s Week was held the week of November 14, 2011 –November 19, 2011. During Veteran’s Week, the Detroit Job Corps Center did a center wide fundraiser and collected $300.00. All proceeds were donated to Desert Angels to help support our veterans.
Desert Angels is a non-profit organization that sends care packages to our Troops serving overseas. The care packages contain a variety of needed items (i.e. socks, pocket foods. letters from home etc.), as well as words of encouragement, hope and love. Desert Angels also add extra items to share and pass out to the native people of the countries that our Troops are stationed in, and throwing in some “fun stuff” or school supplies to give to the children.
A “Pocket Flag” is also included in the care packaged as a reminder to our troops that we are thinking about them and praying for them.
