The Westborough Veterans Advisory Board (WVAB) is sponsoring a community drive to provide care packages to a battalion of infantry troops primarily from Massachusetts that are stationed in the Middle East.  The battalion consists of 189 males and 3 females.
 
The WVAB has established locations where residents of Westborough who wish to sponsor a care package may come and pick up boxes.  Each box will have instructions as to the items requested by this infantry battalion.  Residents should use the “shopping list” as a guide. When the boxes are filled they should be returned to a location listed below no later than February 23, 2018.
 
The locations for pick-up and drop-off are:
 
  • Westborough Veterans Advisory Board, Town Hall Lower Level
  • The First United Methodist Church, 120 West Main Street
  • Westborough Public Library
  • Westborough TV Station, West Main Street
  • Senior Citizens Center, 4 Rodgers Road
 
The First United Methodist Church (FUMC) of Westborough is assisting the Veterans Advisory Board with the logistics. Donations to offset the cost of postage to deliver the packages to our troops can be made with the check payable to Westborough FUMC, 120 West Main Street, Westborough, MA 01581.  Please make a note referencing the VAB Care Packages.
