Adoption of a Deployed Military Unit

Hello all,

FICO collectively has decided to adopt a deployed military unit surrounding the upcoming Pecan Festival that falls on Veterans Day.  Our own Emily Robino from accounting has a stepson who is currently deployed in the United States Air Force, and we would like to send him and his comrades a care package.  If you would like to contribute, please bring any of the below items, or anything non-perishable you may think their unit would appreciate, to the admin office no later than 11/15/2017 so we can send the package out on Friday the 17th.  We will also include the notes to Veterans that are collected during the festival, if you have a moment be sure to stop by.

Ideas of items to donate:

  • Trail mix
  • Baby wipes
  • Magazines
  • Q-tips
  • Instant Mac n Cheese
  • Tuna-To-Go packages
  • Dehydrated fruit and snacks
  • Powdered drink mix – hot cocoa, crystal light, instant tea/coffee
  • Protein and snack bars
  • Jerky
  • Cookies, crackers, chips (try to ensure in rigid containers)
  • Candy and gum
  • Foot powder
  • Puzzles and games

Any contributions made are greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you have any questions.
