The Wilbraham Junior Women's Club has joined forces with several area fire departments in Operation Firepower. Operation Firepower is a recently formed initiative. It is an ongoing collection to support the 399th Combat Support Hospital and the troops serving in the Baghdad, Iraq area. One of our local firefighters is stationed at the 399th Combat Hospital.
In December the Club collected holiday stationary, cards, envelopes, pens and stickers to provide the soldiers with a means to write home to their families for the holidays.
Recently the Club met to assemble 200 Valentine gifts bags filled with candy, Valentine wishes and much needed toiletry items.
The Club will continue their collections for Operation Firepower throughout the year. If you have any stationary related items that you would like to donate you may contact the Junior Women's Club at www.wilbrahamjuniorwomens.org.
