About the Event
Giving back is as American as apple pie, baseball and... well... Thanksgiving!
So as we celebrate the blessings of the past year with our family and friends this Thanksgiving, let's share our joy with those who are far from home.
Join American Association of Singapore and Stamford American International School to pack food and leisure items for US sailors this holiday season. Show your appreciation for their service by helping fill shoeboxes of treats to keep them occupied while they are out at sea with no Internet! (Yes, you read right! There is no Internet on those ships!) A few yummy homemade treats would be most appreciated, too.
Here are the items that we'll be packing:
- Baked goods
- Snacks - candy, popcorn, chips, etc.
- Playing cards
- Small games & crafts (that fit in a shoe box)
- Books & magazine
- Puzzles, crosswords, soduku etc
- Pens & Notepaper
- Thank You cards
We will be providing the shoeboxes so all you need to do is show up and fill them! If you wish to bring along any of the above items to donate or bring a shoebox that's already filled, you're most welcome to do so!
This is also a great way to get your kids into the spirit of giving at Thanksgiving! Your kids could even write a note or draw a picture for the sailors. What a treat!
Hope to see you there!
