Music Authority Family Newsletter - December 10, 2019
Afghanistan, Kuwait, At Sea
My favorite service project of the year is the Any Soldier project. Each year, the Music Authority Roadies collect items to send to American military stationed over seas.
These packages, sent to "Any Soldier," are filled with items from home that are often hard to come by overseas. Beef jerky, card games, magazine, water packets, hygiene items, and other creature comforts that help make the holidays a little more bright for men and women far from home.
We are able to connect to American military units through a program called, Any Soldier. From there, men and women volunteer to be the mail contact for people who want to send care packages to unknown units. The contact soldier posts the needs of their unit. Things like: personal hygiene items needed or we do our own laundry, soap packets are welcome.
More often than not, posts say, anything helps to keep up morale.
We sent boxes to more than ten units this year representing over 1000 soldiers. That means sometime in the next few weeks, ten units will get a little bit of home from the Music Authority Family. We include a letter explaining who we are and how to reach us. Sometimes, we get an email or letter back. Usually, we don. But that's okay. We know the packages make it to where they're going.
This year, two sets of boxes when to navy boats at sea.
Thank you to everyone who helped by donating money, time, or items for our boxes. If you missed out, your family can go to www.anysoldier.com and send your own box. All boxes are appreciated.
Have you noticed Sparkles and Elfish around Music Authority? Sparkles is back this year with a friend. They're keeping an eye on the Music Authority Family and reporting back to Santa!
Dean Guitars and basses are making more of a splash at Music Authority. From the Dean Edge 09 (pictured here), a bass that sits at a price point comfortable to beginners, to the Dean Flying V signatures models we now carry, there's something in the Dean line up for everyone.
Check out Dean Guitars and Basses today at Music Authority!
