Operation Baking Gals – Round 15 is open for Registration!!
It’s that time again everyone! Time to make a real difference by BAKING! I did my first Operation Baking Gals earlier in the year and co-hosted a team recently where we sent baked goods to a friend of mine from High School.
Heather from Heather Drive and I are teaming up again this round to bake for a husband and wife team who are both stationed in Iraq in different units. Thanks so much to a fellow Beantown Baker reader for sending me their information!
Brian and Rebecca were married this past Valentine’s Day and are currently in Iraq on a 18 month deployment!
If you’ve never heard of Operation Baking Gals, check out the website. Basically, a team of bakers get together to send goodies to soldiers stationed overseas. Even non-bakers sign up in the fun to send care packages. Then the soldier being sponsored by a team shares all their goodies with his/her buddies. The shipping dates for Round 15 are Dec 1-16 so the goodies will arrive in time for the holidays.

You can get a special flat rate box from the US Post Office. The boxes are FREE and you can ship the box with anything in it for a flat rate of $11.95. They are specifically for APO/FPO addresses and say “America Supports You” on them. How cool is that!
I hope you can join us. If you know a soldier who would love some love from back home, let us know about that as well! If you have any questions, feel free to email me!
