Hunzinger’s next shipment will take place on Friday, December 6 at 10:00 am (Christmas Shipment).

Since early 2006, Hunzinger Construction has spearheaded an effort to send much-needed supplies to our troops serving in Afghanistan and Iraq.

This program has grown from sending food, toiletries, books, greeting cards, gifts for local kids, and much-needed socks and undergarments, to one soldier in the Army when we began in 2006, to sending quarterly shipments to well over 100 different military units.
See the full list of needed items. 


The Milwaukee War Memorial Center invites you to join them on Friday, December 6th at 1:00 pm to bring cookies for our troops overseas.

History of the Christmas Cookies for the troops-
"My wife sent over 36 or so cookies to my son, fighting overseas. He called later, thanked her, but said she must feed the whole Unit, as they treasured anything from home.
Right about that time we had our annual Christmas party in which we exchanged cookies.
 
There were some left after everyone was done so my wife said she would send them to Iraq to our son. Immediately, everyone gave us all their cookies, so the Christmas cookies for our troops took hold." - Bob and Jean
