Thank You St. Louis!

Doug McElvein

On behalf of Operation Homefront Missouri, the Teamsters Joint Council 13, Carol Daniel and myself I’d like to thank you for the outpouring of good will and graciousness today.  Thanks to you 13 truckloads of the very things people will need to begin to get their lives back in order left St. Louis for Fort Leonard Wood around 1 PM  Saturday afternoon.

Special thanks go to the St. Louis County Police Department and the Missouri Highway Patrol for their assistance in helping make sure the USF Holland trucks were able to form a convoy so their cargo could get to the folks in need as quickly as possible.

How cold was it?  Very.  But we all stayed warm because of the steady flow of people dropping items off.
