NADRA NJ Builds 2nd Deck for Soldier Project this year
NADRA
Well here we are starting our second "Deck For A Soldier" project this fall. Our chapter certainly has the best vendors and manufacturers. The donations have just flowed in faster than we ever expected. We did not have to ask for any materials for this build. A huge "thank you" goes out to everyone involved in donations for this build.

We started the build Monday, Dec. 2 and hope to have it completed by later this week. Once a ribbon cutting date has been finalized we will let everyone know. Check out our Chapter Facebook page for pictures of the project!

Respectfully,
Bruce Verblaauw
