ANTHONY MILAZZO’S EP

I will need your help for 2 days. We will pass out flyers in the Glen Eagle Farm neighborhood on Saturday, July 30th at 9:30 am and then for pick-up of items on Saturday, August 6 th at 9:30 am.

We will meet at Milazzo’ s, 17N681 Adams Drive, West Dundee at 9:00 am for donuts, instructions and lunch afterwards.

My project is to collect items in support for soldiers. These items will be collected by us and I will drop them off at OSOT to pack and ship care packages to individual soldiers.

OSOT’s mission is to support the morale and well-being of American forces by providing comfort, resources and education to them and their families both while they are deployed in harm’s way and after their return. As a volunteer based non-profit organization, OSOT provides the opportunity for our community members to express their appreciation and also offer support for our troops. Engaged in the longest war of our country’s history and with our servicemen and women completing multiple tours of duty, we are committed to showing them that "We Have NOT Forgotten."

Please call me at 847-836- 9184 or 847-338- 6625 to confirm that you can help on one or both days. I am also in need of adults volunteers to supervise and drive scouts both days.

Thank You,
Anthony Milazzo
