The PA Federation of Republican Women are collecting tube socks for our troops overseas. So many little things we take for granted, like going to our drawer, pulling out a pair of socks and changing whenever we like. Our soldiers who are over there fighting for our freedom, so we can change socks however many times a day we like, are they themselves in need of socks.
PFRW will be collecting socks at their next board meeting on August 9, 2013. If you are not attending the board meeting, but would like to donate socks, please see someone who is a Republican Women member.
The SUN Area Council of Republican Women will host a booth at the Evangelical Community Hospital’s Children’s Health Fair at the Susquehanna Valley Mall on Saturday, January 26, 2013 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Please stop by and visit the booth.
