Food for the Troops



Peggy McGee

The Green Valley Chapter Military Officers Association of America will be holding its annual grocery drive for members of the Air National Guard in Tucson over the Fourth of July weekend.

Specially marked bins will be placed in the Madera Clubhouse lobby from July 1 through 4 for donations of non-perishable foods as well as cleaning and paper supplies, hygiene items and even pet food. Foods the troops enjoy include cereal, granola bars, mac ‘n cheese, soups, stews, ravioli and peanut butter.

A special envelope for tax deductible monetary donations will also be available. Checks should be made payable to GV MOAA S&A Fund.

As we celebrate our country’s independence, please consider supporting our young troops who are willing to put themselves in harm’s way to preserve our way of life.

There will also be a 50-50 raffle on the fourth during and right after the golf cart parade.
