Operation Baking Gals – Round 19 Is Open for Registration!
It’s that time again everyone! Time to make a real difference by BAKING! 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 19 are May 3-12.
Team Beantown Baker will be sponsoring Richard for Operation Baking Gals Round 19. Richard is originally from Taunton, MA. He has a younger sister, Kelly. Richard has been married to Kristen and they have two children. A 7 year old son, Christopher, and a 3 year old daughter, Katelyn. You can read more about Richard in my Operation Baking Gals article which was posted today.
Please consider joining Team Beantown Baker to send goodies to Richard in Iraq. I will be doing a roundup at the end of the round, so be sure to send me any info/pics of what you send. Email me if you have any questions.

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!
