Operation Baking Gals Round 31 – Join my team!
It’s been a while since I have hosted an Operation Baking Gals team. But I’m back and I hope you’ll join me this round! If you know someone who is deployed and would like for me to sponsor them, please email me.
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 31 are June 1-11.
This round, Team Beantown Baker will be sponsoring a friend of mine named Nate. Nate was born in Hawaii and then moved all over because his father was in the Army. His family has settled in the Seattle area and he has two brothers and a sister. Nate enjoyed reading, running, and cooking. Nate is currently on his first deployment until November of this year.
Please consider joining Team Beantown Baker to send goodies to Nate in Afghanistan. I will be doing a roundup at the end of the round, so be sure to send me any info/pics that you want included in the roundup. 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!
