Operation Bedding

They're based in Philadelphia, but you can help no matter where you are:

Operation Bedding came to be after a Sunday morning phone call from our son Adam. At the time he was serving in Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He asked if I could send him bed sheets, he requested forty sets. He explained that the weather was so hot, and with little free time clean sheets would be nice. He was concerned that his friends have the same comforts that he had and that's why he needed forty sets. He jokingly said get Operation Bedding going mom. That Friday he was killed.

Without realizing it Adam had just set up his own memorial fund. For the funeral services we requested money instead of flowers so we could send a shipment of supplies to Adam's friends still serving. The outpouring of love and support was overwhelming. So many expressed their gratitude and were eager to help.

Since that time with the support and generosity of others we have been able to send thousands of dollars in supplies and goodies. It is our way to express our gratitude to those so willing to lay down their life for our freedom. Please join our effort!
