Sanitary District Two wants your old American Flags
Support the Stars for our Troops Program.
What is Stars for our Troops?
The Stars for our Troops program takes your old, tattered and worn out American Flags and turns them into a prized possession for an American Soldier at home, on base or overseas. Volunteers lovingly cut each embroidered star from the flag, dispose of the stripes properly, and place each star into a tiny plastic bag with a card. The card reads:
"I am part of our American flag that has flown over a home in the U.S.A. I can no longer fly. The sun and winds have caused me to become tattered and torn. Please carry me as a reminder that you are not forgotten"
Each American Flag can touch the lives of 50 American Soldiers even after it's reached the end of its flying days!
How can you help?
Drop you flags at the flag drop off box in the rear of Sanitary 2 at 2080 Grand Avenue Baldwin.
Through a partnership with Gettysburg Flag Company, they will see that the flags are cleaned and each embroidered star makes its way to an American Soldier.
