In collaboration with the CenterState Bank in Eustis, the Ocklawaha Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution will be collecting items to benefit Operation Paperback on Saturday, August 12th from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
Veteran, Ernest Pigman, said “As a vet of the Korean War, I know how much enjoyment you can get out of a good book.”
Benjamin Blackburn is stationed at the Soto Cano Air Base in Honduras. He says, “Because of the operational climate here, soldiers are not allowed off-post at times and this makes our little library all the more important. We’d love to receive audio books, CDs and DVDs too!”
Charlene Black at the CenterState Bank said, “CenterState is always looking for opportunities to be involved in our community especially when that includes helping our troops. Operation Paperback stood out as a great opportunity to put that into action. We value those who serve and we give back through our Community Hero program as well. Our core values reflect our passion for community and people. We are committed to Faith & Family as well as building lifelong friendships. That relationship is more valuable to us than any transaction that we do.”
If you have gently used paperback books, books on CD, music CDs or DVDs you’d like to donate, stop by the bank, located at 15830 US-441 in Eustis. If you’re in the area and don’t have anything to donate, stop by anyway! You can write a note to one of our Military Personnel to be included in one of our shipments. You can also purchase a WristStory bracelet for $5.00 to help cover the cost of shipping. If you have any questions, please email spooker15@aol.com.

Come out and show your support for our Military Personnel both at home and abroad!
