Boxes of Love

Boxes of love VT collection

ACB is happy to announce that we will once again be collecting care package items and monetary donations for Boxes of Love VT.

Boxes of Love VT was founded in 2012 by Patty Erdeski after her son was deployed to Afghanistan. When she discovered that many men and women did not receive packages from home, Patty took it upon herself to find a way to get them something special. Since then, Boxes of Love VT has packaged and shipped more than 1,600 care packages to U.S. soldiers.

We will have donation boxes at every ACB branch if you want to participate in this initiative. Please drop off any contributions by September 26th. If you’re not sure what to send, view the list below.
