Adopt a Soldier Spring 2016

MAC Adopt a Soldier

This Spring, Temple Har Shalom will be ‘adopting’ individual deployed military members for whom we will assemble care packages. Families can purchase supplies and treats for soldiers and are encouraged to write letters or postcards to accompany their package. We are also requesting an $18 donation to cover shipping. Families can help in two ways:

A. “Adopt a soldier” by donating $18.00 to help cover shipping costs.

B. Send in the suggested items below to help fill the packages.

• Small bags or individually wrapped snacks ​and/or cereal

• Individual servings of powdered drinks for water bottles and individual coffee or tea bags

• Travel size personal hygiene items

• Lip Balm

• Puzzles, games

• Stationery, journals

• AT&T prepaid phone cards

• Batteries

• Small board games

The care packages will be assembled by our Temple youth.  This is a great family project that can make a difference in the lives of soldiers to whom we owe our gratitude and who will appreciate our support.  If your family would like to adopt a solider, please contact Cheryl Opell at or 973-885-6471 for your soldier’s name.​​

Items can be dropped off in the red bin marked OPERATION GRATITUDE. (Please bring all gift cards to the office.)
