Homes For Our Troops is a non profit veterans support organization, which builds specially adapted homes and provides them mortgage free to veterans with life-altering injuries. This is a Vendor Event to raise money for this wonderful cause.
The Montville VFW has donated their hall so we can have a huge 20+ vendor event which will include crafts, food and small business vendors. Each of these vendors will also donate a raffle prize from their business as well as local businesses and private donations.
Vendors to participate are: Scentsy, Mary Kay, Tastefully Simple, 31 Gifts, Pampered Chef, Silpada, and many more.
Food and beverages will be available to purchase. An information table for Homes For Our Troops will be available as well. Raffle Tickets will be $5.00 an arm length.
We are also taking and recycling cell phones to benefit our military - Help Operation Gratitude in their mission to send care packages to U.S. troops overseas. GRC Wireless Recycling will contribute up to $30 (or more) to Operation Gratitude for each donated phone. Anyone that writes a letter for a serviceman/woman and/or draws a picture or brings in an item that we can ship over for the troops, you will receive 3 free raffle tickets. If you do all three, you will get 10 free raffle tickets. Lets show our support for our troops, here at home or abroad.
