Treat the Troops thanks St. Francis Thrift Shop for grant

Treat the Troops wishes to thank the manager and Thrift Shop Council of St. Francis Thrift Shop for the generous grant to our cookie program, which is dedicated to supporting deployed military men and women.

We have two South Carolina units on our monthly list. Our rewards are the appreciative letters we get from the recipients of the cookie boxes.

The St. Francis Thrift Shop, a charitable organization, shares its rewards by granting funds to aid local programs. The saying, "Charity begins at home," is appropriate.

The Cookie Lady and the Ladies of Treat the Troops are indeed grateful.

Jill Arneman, vice president
