You may also make a tax deductible donation to help off set the cost of postage.  It costs $12.95 per soldier to mail the packages to Iraq.  If you would like to support a soldier in this way you may send your check payable to CNG-WMA to: California National Guard Warrior Medics Association

As you know the San Mateo County Fair has adopted the 297th Area Support Medical Company (ASMC).   The Army National Guard Soldiers have been deployed to Iraq for their Operation New Dawn Tour.  This is the first deployment for 297th ASMC since 1954.  While in Iraq, this unit will provide basic medical care and support for soldiers.

Don’t forget  – the San Mateo County Fair takes place from June 11-19, 2011 and Military Day is scheduled on Thursday, June 16.  On this day individuals with an active military ID will be allowed free entry to the Fair.   Care package donations will be accepted throughout the Fair.  In addition, Fair patrons will be encouraged to write a letter or postcard to a soldier.  Many soldiers do not receive any mail and a simple note from home can make a difference.

Your care package donation can make a huge difference in the daily life of a soldier.
Items we take for granted are the items soldiers miss the most.  You can help to support the soldiers by donating items listed below:
