Yellow Ribbon Project
What is the Yellow Ribbon Project? The Yellow Ribbon Project is a grass roots not-for-profit program that operates strictly on donations. The money collected for the Project is used strictly for shipping packages to soldiers serving in harm’s way, purchasing items specifically for soldiers, or for small office items needed for the Project. Money is not used for staffing, travel, food, or any other items not directly related to the soldiers.
How do I adopt a soldier? You may adopt a soldier by downloading and completing the Adopter Form. You will then need to send the form to LCBSM (see below). Adopting a soldier entails purchasing items to fill a medium or large flat rate, postal box each month with items your soldier needs. You will receive information about your soldier (like hobbies, interests, and etc.) so that it will be fun and easy to shop for him/her. Each month, you would need to drop your box off at Nelson Body Shop, 644 Slate Branch Rd., Somerset, by the due date You may correspond through your box with your soldier giving your mailing address or email address to encourage communication. We cannot guarantee he/she will have time to respond but many have.
