US Troop Support
For several years, Mt. Zion has maintained a partnership with the Chaplain Staff and the Catholic Community at US Army base Fort Detrick in Frederick in an effort to provide ongoing support to our men and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to our wounded troops hospitalized stateside.
All throughout the year, we collect personal care and recreational items for our troops. We then assemble care packages, as well as send personal notes and cards of support to our heroes fighting in the War Against Terror and to those who have returned home wounded. Several of our congregational and community families have members who are currently active military, and we support them and their units with love gifts, too.
For more information, or to place a soldier, sailor, airman, Marine or guardsman on our list of recipients, please contact Laurie Whitley at 301-473-9062 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
