March 15 to April 15: 10th Annual Munchies 4 the Military

The 10th Annual Munchies 4 the Military is currently underway thanks to a partnership between Henderson-based Inspirada, Liberty High School and City of Henderson to benefit the Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation. The donation drive and volunteer event takes place through April 15.

The Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation (DJGMF) was founded by Suni Chabrow after her son, SPC Douglas J. Green, was killed in action in 2011, during his second tour in Afghanistan. DJGMF not only honors Green’s memory but it supports service members by sending thoughtful and useful care packages during their deployment.

The 10th Annual Munchies 4 the Military is slated through April 15 and asks Southern Nevada residents to donate wish list items to fill the DJGMF care packages, with a goal of sending 500 care packages to active-duty service members. Munchies 4 the Military wish list items include: individually wrapped breakfast items, snack foods, beef jerky, nuts, dried fruit, trail mix, chips, granola bars, gum, soup, protein bars, cookies, candy, and men’s and women’s hygiene and baby wipes. Plus, locals can contribute by making monetary donations, which will help offset the cost of postage – approximately $20 per box.

Wish list donations can be dropped off at any of the 25 Henderson locations including Inspirada new home sales centers of Gardens, Groves, Landings and Reserves collections by KB Home and Amiata collection by Toll Brothers; the Inspirada Community Association in Solista Park; West Henderson Library; Ellis Elementary School; Del Webb Middle School; Liberty High School; Pinecrest Academy Sloan Canyon campus; City of Henderson City Hall and recreations centers; Realty One Group St. Rose office; and Berkshire Hathaway Services NV St. Rose office.  

On Saturday, April 20, volunteers and students from Liberty High School will then box up donations to assemble care packages that will be sent to military service members and families deployed overseas.
