Trumbull Community Women helps to send care packages to troops

Trumbull Community Women recently partnered with volunteers from A Project From the Heart, to box and mail 30 bed pillows and pillowcases to a U.S. Marine Unit stationed in Afghanistan.

This was a shared effort between Project From the Heart, made up of retired police wives and other concerned Connecticut citizens who package and mail “We Care” boxes to our armed forces in Iraq and Afghanistan — and the Trumbull volunteers whose motto is RElove Trumbull REdiscover our town.

Each organization purchased 15 pillows and pillowcases. Project From the Heart volunteers boxed and transported the pillows to the post office and Trumbull Community Women paid for the postage. Through the dedication of all involved, 30 U.S. Marines will now have a more comfortable night’s rest.
