As most of you know, the holidays will be here before you know it. For those who have friends and family serving in our military services overseas, it can be a difficult time. There is a wonderful organization called Operation Buckeye, whose volunteers pack and ship thousands of care packages each year to these military personnel. We want to help provide as many items as possible this year for their shipments.
Click Here for: Operation Buckeye Item List of the most-requested items from our service-members. If you are able to provide some items from this list, would you please contribute to our club’s donation to Operation Buckeye?
We will make it as easy as possible: You gather the items, and we can arrange either a pickup from you, or a place for you to drop them off.
Thank you so much for your generosity, to help those who are defending our freedom!
Did you get too much candy when you went trick-or-treating? Or do you have leftovers because not enough children came to visit you? We have a great use for these goodies!!
The Franklin County OSU Alumni Club will be putting together goodie bags again this year for a group of students in one of the dorms. Candy, gum, pencils, any little trinkets you think a college kid would appreciate while studying for fall semester exams — bring them to us!
We will collect items at our November meeting, or you can contact us to arrange a drop off or pick up. Then we’ll choose a night to pack the bags, and another night to deliver them to the dorms.
You are welcome to participate in any of the three steps — gathering supplies, packing the bags, or delivering. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you can do.
Two of our scholarship recipients will be participating in this project, so its a great opportunity for you to get to meet some great students!

kids named Wes Moore were born blocks apart within a year of each other. Both
grew up fatherless in similar Baltimore neighborhoods and had difficult
childhoods; both hung out on street corners with their crews; both ran into
trouble with the police. How, then, did one grow up to be a Rhodes Scholar,
decorated veteran, White House Fellow, and business leader, while the other
ended up a convicted murderer serving a life sentence? Wes Moore, the
author of this fascinating book, sets out to answer this profound question. In
alternating narratives that take readers from heart-wrenching losses to moments
of surprising redemption, tells the story of a generation
discussion with a group of students during early Fall semester. If you request
a book from us, we would like you to participate in the discussion group as
well. If you have any questions, please contact Jessica.
