Hi my name is Bryce Thornton. With the help of so many kind people and businesses I just finished a gift drive for the Soldiers in Afghanistan. We packed 5350 pounds of donations into 754 boxes and raised over $16,000 in just 4 weeks time. Some of the major sponsors of the gift drive were: Gary West Meats, State Farm Corporate, West Coast Paper, State Farm Local Agents, Figaro’s Pizza, Academy Video, Silverwood Builders, Sandra Jane Music Foundation, Batteries Plus, Rogue Federal Credit Union. I want to thank these people for helping: KOBI 5 NBC News and Hillary Lake, Bill Meyer at KMED 1440AM, Upper Rogue Independent, Valley Feed and Supply, Lars Larson Radio, B.S.A. Troop 48, Grange Co-Op, and Medford Mail Tribune. There were countless others who are greatly appreciated also.
This will make so many soldier’s Christmas a happy time of the year. Thank you again for your help in this gift drive. All you have done is much appreciated. Have a Merry Christmas. As of December 23rd ALL of the boxes have arrived and are being distributed to the Soldiers.
