Our Veterans of Foreign Wars, Grasonville Memorial Post #7464 on Maryland's Eastern Shore, generously donated $250.00 to Eric's Goal. We recently combined this with other monies in our account and purchased 36 soccer balls and 4 pumps for our young Iraqi friends.
This is the first shipment to go a soldier other than Eric. Instead, they were sent to Eric's very good friend, George. We will be mailing shipments to various soldiers in different areas of Iraq, all for distribution to the children!
Combined with a recent donation from the Ebmeir Family in Forest Hill, MD, this brings our total to 2,150 soccer balls sent to Iraq since the inception of our project in March of this year!
We would like to extend our sincere thanks to VFW Post #7464 for supporting Eric's Goal, our troops, and the Iraqi children. You continue to honor our country with your good works.
