A fun (and tasty) way to volunteer!

Iowa Troop Pantry is hosting numerous bake sales each Friday at the Iowa City Regina Fish Fries.  This is a major source of fund raising for postage to mail off care packages to our deployed.  As of January 1st we have sent out 670 care packages totaling 6,420 lbs!

We are currently support three complete units who are deployed to the Afghan-Pakistan borders plus a few individual military service members spread out around the world.  These guys on the border have a very difficult time getting essential supplies for their basic needs due to federal budget cuts.  We will be picking up another group who has a fellow Iowan that is deploying next Monday. 

We would really appreciate your support!

Top selling baked goods:  jumbo sized cookies, scotcharoos, cupcakes, mini loaf size banana and pumpkin bread, cinnamon rolls, rice krispie treats, kolaches (as many as we can get our hands on- favorites: blackberry, poppyseed, apricot, cherry, strawberry)

If you know someone who is willing to bake, contact Maria (iowatrooppantry@gmail.com or 319-430-8118). If someone needs help with supplies we can assist.

Dates we need bakers:  March 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30th. 

Please let us know if you are able to help us out.  If not, stop by for some fish and baked goodies!
