The Iowa Troop Pantry and Wreaths Across America Johnson County are raising funds to give to Spc. Maher's family. We will be contributing all proceeds from the final bake sale at Regina this week (Friday 4/15 from 5:00 - 8:00 PM) and collecting funds. If you are not able to make it to the bake sale, you may send a check to the Iowa Troop Pantry with a note in the memo line what it is for and we will include it.
Please send checks to:
Iowa Troop Pantry
P.O. Box 3032

We will also be collecting cards to include with our contribution to the family. Cards may be sent to the same address as above.
