USA Troops

March 1 through April 7, 2019 

We’re supporting a local group,, which annually ships 800 boxes of care and comfort items to deployed troops.

Our project leader, Christine Dickinson, can be reached through Karen Kogler,


Donate Items

Bring items from this list to collection boxes in the church and Bartz Hall lobbies Feb. 28 through March 31.


Make Cards

Make personal cards and letters for the troops. They love corny jokes and they love it when kids talk about their everyday life. Make cards on your own and drop them off at church or come to our card-making event on Sun. 3/17, 9am to 11 am, in the Life Center motor room.


Help Cover Costs

Help with shipping costs. Drop off a check designated for “Help USA Troops” or give online.


Sorting/Packing Party

Join the sorting/packing party at Amvets Post 66, 700 McHenry Rod, Wheeling, on  Saturday, 4/6/19 (10am to finish) and Sunday, 4/7 (11am to about 2pm). Come and go; help as much as you’re able. Optional: wear your St. Peter BDOS T-shirt; if you need one, contact Isabel Peterson,
