From Left: Katheryn, Rusty, Will, and Mary Kay
Lt. Will Bishop, a graduate from Verona High School and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, was recently shipped to Afghanistan to defend our country.
His parents, Mary Kay and Rusty Bishop, and sister Katheryn are preparing care packages filled with supportive cards, food, toiletries, and other items to make Will and his 500 fellow soldiers feel at home.
A Camo Quilt Project has been created with the goal of making one quilt for each soldier in Will's base camp. The quilts are used as blankets, a shield to the dessert sun, or a barrier over the hot sand. Each quilt costs about $25 to make.
The Bishop's are accepting donations to help support their mission. A donation of any amount makes an impact and is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
The Bishop's and Verona community members are accepting volunteers on
April 13th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to make cards and work on the Camo Quilt Project.
