“It was wonderful to receive the call from Cindy about her ‘Virtual Holiday Collection’. She told me that knowing the generosity of her fellow PSEG colleagues, it’s likely to be an enormous amount of supplies and goodies. She wanted to know if we could handle the volume. Immediately, I said, ‘Yes!’ Soon after that call. the packages started arriving at our doorstep to box up and mail out to our service members. It has been non-stop, and we could not be happier about it!” said Marion Zilinski, Co-Founder and Board Member of the Zilinski Memorial Fund.

One of the fourth graders in the crowd, Lizzy Wittmer, said she knows the sacrifices of being a military family all too well. Her father serves in the Army. Lizzy told us what she thought of collecting supplies and making cards for our troops. She said, “I feel good, and I know it’s going to help people, because after I was born my dad had to go to Afghanistan for a year. This helps them to survive and be happy.”
“You don’t know how excited these men and women will be to get your packages,” said Marion Zilinski, according to a statement provided afterwards to Patch. “When you’re in a place like Afghanistan, stores don’t exist at the corner where you can buy a toothbrush or lip balm, and it’s no fun to go without items you really need.”
Plan ahead to come support one of our events this year.
Wreaths Across America has thousands of volunteers around the world, and many of them are young people. That makes the mission to remember, honor and teach that much more gratifying for all involved. When we show them by example and involvement, they will pay it forward just as Jordan Codispoti of New Jersey is doing.
On Saturday, December 7th we will be taking a bus full of volunteers up to West Point to join Wreaths Across America in their Wreath laying ceremony/efforts. We have a scholarship recipient who has championed a drive/sponsorship campaign for people to sponsor wreaths we lay at West Point Cemetery.
