2012 Spring Dance Service Project

Spring Dance Service Project
This year’s service project will be helping two units of soldiers. Please drop your donations at Eden Prairie High School on Apr 27th.

  1. The 651st EAES evacuation unit
    • They prepare wounded, injured and sick patients for evacuation to Germany hospitals.
    • CRITICALLY NEEDED ITEMS FOR PATIENTS:
      • Athletic shoes of all sizes (this request is for inexpensive, or even “very gently used and clean” men’s athletic shoes for the walking wounded. “so these men can walk proudly to the evacuation planes on
        their own, and not need to be carried on stretchers” Men’s shoes only, sizes 9 – 12 THIS IS A HUGE NEED!!
      • Sweat pants for wounded soldiers (sizes Medium, large, XL only – suggest black, blue and gray colors)
      • Hooded zipper sweatshirts for wounded soldiers (sizes Medium, large, XL only – suggest black, blue and gray
        colors)
      • The zipper-front shirts work best, since many injured guys can’t manage a pull-over sweatshirt due to arm, shoulder, neck or back injuries.
  2. Deployed until late 2012
    • 150 men in remote base with no PX or amenities
    • This unit is extremely hurting on hygiene items, especially baby wipes. They only have 2 working showers for the entire company. Baby wipes would be amazing. The senior medic for the company says it’s becoming increasingly difficult to get these items.

Anything sent would be greatly appreciated but those are probably their biggest needs. If every girl brought just one item it would help so much.
