With the Holidays coming up and so many of our Men and Women in the Military still overseas, I thought the members of SMF could make a small difference.
I've thought about this for awhile, and decided to offer a 6x6 A-MAZE-N-SMOKER incl. (3) 1# Pkgs. A-MAZE-N-DUST in "Exchange" for a box filled with items from the list below, requested by Men and Women in our Military.
I'll offer (10) smokers for "Exchange"
There are (2) Parts to my offer, so PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!
I'll try to post a PDF or Word.doc of the list for download, but for now you could "Cut & Paste" the list into Word or Notepad.
Part 1 - The Exchange
I will send you (1) 6x6 A-MAZE-N-SMOKER incl. (3) 1# Pkgs. of Sawdust, shipped to your address. You fill a USPO Large Flat Rate Box(Approx.12"x12"x6" & costs $14.70) with items from the list below and ship to my address. After I receive your box, your A-MAZE-N-SMOKER and Sawdust will be shipped. I'll also post pics of the items you sent, and ship the box to a Military Man or Woman in Part 2. Items can be purchased from Target, Walmart, Dollar Store, Etc. Place all liquid items in ZipLoc bags and DO NOT send aerosol cans. Send me a PM if you're interested in an "Exchange" and we can work out the details.
Part 2 - Military Men & Women
I am asking for members to forward the names of a family member or friend in the Military, who may need a "Care Package" sent to them. Please have the correct shipping info and I would prefer "You" personally contact the soldier as they may have a request for personal items. PM me and we can work out the details.
This list was compiled from a number of different lists I found on the internet. This is in no way a complete list of items requested by our Military. Items must be individual, sample size or individually wrapped. No products containing aerosol can be shipped. Several items can be packed in sealed zip-lock sandwich size baggies for shipping.
