Weekly Support Our Troops Group
12/17/2014 12:00:00 AM

The Recreation Therapy department does a weekly Support Our Troops group. During this group, we discuss veterans, active military personnel in the US and those deployed overseas. We do fund raising to purchase supplies and materials to send to the deployed military personnel in care packages. The fund raising includes making treat bags, muffins, cookies, etc. to sell to staff here at RiverRidge. The care packages that we put together contain hygiene products, small games, writing supplies or snack foods, all are requested needs from the military. Recently, our Support our Troops group helped organize a Veterans Day ceremony where we honored the veterans here at RiverRidge, both staff and clients. This past week we were able to go watch Wreathes Across America convoy of trucks that went through Kennebunk on their way to Arlington National Cemetery.
