Heidelberg Township: Donate and help thank those who serve
Pennsylvania’s service men and women (and their families) make remarkable personal sacrifices to ensure our country’s freedom, and PSATS wants to again share a touch of home with our hometown heroes. We will be collecting items at PSATS’ Annual Conference for a care package that will be delivered to Pennsylvania National Guard troops.
How Heidelberg Township Residents Can Help:
Drop off your contribution for care packages in the box at Heidelberg Township by April 17, 2015 5PM.
We will bring your items and put them in the collection boxes the Hershey Lodge. At the same time, we’ll add our name to our “Thank You, Troops!” signs that will also be in the lobby and will accompany our shipment.
