Packing for the troops

Volunteers assemble the packages for the American troops overseas.

Last Thursday, Julie Post hosted an Operation Interdependence Packing Party for the troops, coordinated by her mother, Cindy Linke. There was overwhelming support from the Malibu community through the schools, the Malibu Republican Women’s club and business owners. A large number of items were donated to help fill 1,000 bags by more than 46 volunteers. Students drew pictures and wrote notes. Twenty boxes will be shipped to troops throughout the world. This was the largest packing party in Malibu to date.

A pasta and salad lunch was provided for the volunteers by Spruzzo’s and D’Amore’s Pizza.
