Soldier Care 2013 - A Cup of Joe For a Joe:  March 3 & 10

CCC to Honor our Veterans and Active Military

Over the years, CCC has collected 2,267 lbs. of donated items! This year, we are going to do something a little different in honor of our men and women in uniform. We want to thank all the active and retired members/family members of CCC for their service by treating them to some well-deserved relaxation over coffee at their local Coffee House, either at the base’s Green Beans Coffee House or another local favorite.

In addition to supporting our CCC members/family members, we will be supporting Chaplain Michael Oliver (former CCC member) in Germany and Chaplain Mike Spikes at Ft. Campbell.  They are two Chaplains that have benefited from our Coffee Gift Cards in the past and have indicated that it is a wonderful way to minister to their troops!

So…How can you help? 

·    Drop off your donation either in the Offertory or in the Narthex on March 3 & 10 (‘Military Care’ must be on memo line).

·    For family members of CCC that are active, in training, in the reserves, or right here in Nashville/Franklin … send your Soldier’s Rank, Name, Mailing Address, Email Address, and Country to Steve Braaksma at steven_jb13@hotmail.com. If they are located somewhere that does not have a Green Beans Coffee shop (see below list), please indicate the coffee shop nearest them offering gift cards.
