N.J. league teams with Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon
HIGHTSTOWN, N.J. (3/26/08)--The New Jersey Credit Union League (NJCUL) is partnering with Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon to help make sure that the New Jersey National Guard soldiers and their families have everything they need. About 3,000 state soldiers are deployed in Iraq. Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon was started in April 2003 and was incorporated into the state on May 19, 2007. The NJCUL’s partnership with the organization has the following goals, according to the league:
* To support the soldiers in Iraq with care cartons of personal items, snacks and other goodies to make then feel special and loved; and * To provide support to families at home who are having difficulties because the man or woman of the house is not around. This support could entail everything from raking leaves and cleaning the house to going shopping and picking up laundry--whatever a military family might need.
The league is encouraging all New Jersey credit unions to participate in the effort. The league will provide more information and marketing materials, and will serve as a drop-off for the care cartons.
