ADP La Palma Packing Party

What a fun day with generous employees at  ADP in La Palma!  Not only did they collect donations of toiletries for weeks in their office, they spent their varying lunch hours to come down and pack 159 "rack pack" - bags filled with toiletries used by service members immediately after they return from deployment and before they have time to purchase new, clean toiletries.  The bags included full sized shampoo/conditioner, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving cream, floss, deodorant, lip balm, wet wipes, a travel sized lotion, and sunscreen.   They can also be used for homeless veterans, which comes in handy - we just had a large request this week.

They also donated three cases of wet wipes to Hero Support Force (an item that serice members use all the time whie deployed to keep themselves and everything around them clean), as well as cash to help purchase items  requested by service members.  Our exciting day was capped off by a few of our local heroes we arranged stopping by to load up the goodies and have some lunch.
