February bingo games benefit Yolo Military Families

The Davis Odd Fellows will host their Second Sunday Bingo fundraiser on Feb. 9 to benefit Yolo Military Families. For the past 10 years, the group has mailed “Hugs From Home” supply boxes to Yolo County soldiers stationed abroad. In 2013, “Hugs From Home” went to 220 soldiers.

The boxes contain toiletries, sunscreen, snack foods, instant noodle soup, instant oatmeal, hand warmers, socks, cough drops, small batteries, crossword puzzle books, magazines and cards full of good wishes from grateful Yolo County individuals and families. Among the soldiers’ favorites are cards hand-drawn by local schoolchildren.

Events like the Odd Fellows’ bingo help pay for the postage for the boxes, including an upcoming shipment for Valentine’s Day.

“It’s nice to know that good people back home are thinking of us even though it seems we have been gone overseas for so long,” one soldier said in a thank-you note.

In addition, for the past four years, Yolo Military Families has donated toiletries and food items to Fisher House at Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield. Fisher House is a home away from home for the families of soldiers or veterans who are receiving treatment at David Grant Medical Center. Family members are able to spend up to 30 days free at this home across the street from the hospital while their wounded warrior or veteran receives treatment.

Fisher House has just broken ground on a second home at this location.

To contact Yolo Military Families, email Linda Smith at [email protected].

Doors at the Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St., open at noon on Feb. 9 and bingo games begin at 1 p.m. Players can win cash prizes of up to $250, and pull-tab instant winners receive $100. There are also drawings for gift packages and other prizes.

Snacks and beverages are available for sale all afternoon.
