From Troopers to Troops

I spent part of Friday photographing some Stormtroopers who made a surprise visit to a local company's sales meeting. They actually made a few people jump out of their seats during their brief appearance.

On Saturday, my friends and I joined 30+ other volunteers sorting care packages to send to the troops in Iraq. We stuffed magazines, books, toiletries, Starbucks coffee, and other tidbits in the boxes you see in the photo. This is a quarterly sorting event that the South Bay Blue Star Moms organizes.

Have a nice week,

The care packages are really nice. I'm sure there will be some happy soldiers when they get those.

that guy is scary.
But what a nice thing to do for our troops that is a lot of stuffing

Dot: I hope so. It was a good to know so many people care.

KMF: Thanks for coming by.

Lilli & Nevada: They just look menacing, but really nice guys. We stuffed hundreds of individual boxes. People donated thousands of pounds of Starbucks Coffee during Christmas to be shipped now.

Thanks Photowannabe, I thought so too. It was my first time doing something like that.
