2011 “Doing Our Part from the Heart” campaign extended through the end of March

The 2011 “Doing Our Part from the Heart” campaign is being extended until the end of March in an effort to collect more needed supplies to send to men and women overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“We have found over the years, when the weather gets a little warmer various groups get out and collect more for us,” Councilwoman Madonna Flood (D-24). “So, we want to give those group a few more weeks to get out and help us.”

Flood officially kicked off the 2011 “Doing Our Part from the Heart” campaign on Valentine’s Day this year. For the last four years, the campaign has been collecting donations of items such as hand sanitizer, eye drops, bug repellent, candy and more for troops.

The campaign’s goal is 400 boxes to be shipped overseas.

“I am always amazed at the caring nature of the people of our community,” says Flood. “For many people economic times are still tough but they donate and we have been fortunate that there will be enough money to cover shipping this year.”

More than 1,300 boxes of supplies have been sent to US troops over the last three years. The Okolona Business Association, the Okolona Fire Department, Republic Bank, Scheller’s Fitness and Cycling and Jackson- Hewitt Tax Service are primary sponsors along with Flood for the 2011 “Doing Our Part from the Heart” campaign.
