Operation Honey Badger Returns!!
Alvin CrossFit is proud to re-deploy Operation Honey Badger (OPHB); a community effort to show our troops & vets that after a decade and a half of war, they are still in our hearts & on our minds. This is an ongoing, 100% volunteer effort so we can make periodic shipments to deployed troops from the local area. The last time we did this we packed 22 boxes and shipped 13, cause we ran out of names so this year we want to ensure we have more than enough names. Don't worry, those 9 extra boxes eventually shipped and some of those guys got 2 boxes!
For the next few weeks, we are gathering items (list below), names and donations so we can send care packages to local troops deployed overseas. The deadline to donate is the same day as our PACKING PARTY, Saturday May 11th at 10 AM. Our intention is to drop the boxes at the post office that day so the packages can get to the troops by Memorial Day.
How can you help?
There are currently 4 drop-off locations. You can donate items at our gym (1110 East Hwy 6) at the times below: * 4 - 7 AM (Monday - Friday) * 4 - 7:30 PM (Monday - Friday) * 9- 10 AM on Saturdays You can drop off items at the Grace Episcopal Church admin building (Across the street from the church) Monday through Thursday from 9-1. Rocket Boom Coffee on Sealy St. in Alvin also has a barrel and lastly, if you live in the Santa Fe area, you can drop off at Ante Up CrossFit on Hwy. 6 during business hours.
Click HERE to submit names in the comments section of our Facebook Event of troops you'd like us to send a care package to or you can stop by the gym and fill out the mailing form on the donation barrel. We'll need: * Rank and name * Unit * FOB * AE or AP? * Zip code
Can't make it by the gym, no problem! You can donate the cost of shipping a care package to a troop HERE! The price to ship is $19 per box and all money donated will go towards buying boxes and if we have more boxes than troops to ship to, we'll use those funds to purchase more goodies for the boxes.
Lastly, you can join us during the Packing Party! Every Saturday we open the gym to anyone that has wanted to try CrossFit but wanted to see what it was like before committing so we offer this service for FREE! SO.. on Saturday, May 11th 2019 at 9 AM we invite YOU to come try a partner workout with us and then stick around to help us pack boxes and write notes to the troops! If you can't make the workout, you can still come to the packing party at 10 AM to help out.
We are currently accepting donations & requests during the gym hours listed above.
With your help we're looking to smash our shipment numbers from last time and keep this going as an ongoing quarterly event.
Thank y'all so much for the
support. This will be greatly
