Military Support

The Military Support Group was formed to assist family members of deployed servicemen and servicewomen. Minnesota does not have a major military installation, so we provide support for family members coping with deployments and long separations. One of our major operations is Operation Shoebox.  In this service, we pack and ship boxes to military personnel overseas.  You can make financial donations, or donations of goods.  100% of financial contributions marked for Military Support goes to supplies or shipping costs of the Shoeboxes.  

If you want more information about the Military Support group, contact Sister Jancy, here.
