Operation Tango Mike fundraiser planned June 4

LAKEPORT – On Saturday, June 4, Linda’s Gift Gallery and Hallmark at 991 11th St. in Lakeport will host an event benefiting Operation Tango Mike, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Operation Tango Mike, Operation Thanks Much, is an all volunteer nonprofit that ships monthly care packages to deployed military personnel.

Since 2003, the group has shipped more than 24,000 care packages.

There will be prizes, raffles and more. Anyone bringing a donation item for military care packages will receive a shopping discount, and a portion of the day’s sales will be donated to Operation Tango Mike.

Suggested donation items include nuts, jerky, tuna pouches, protein bars, individual drink mixes, stick deodorant, foot/body powder and lip balm.

Hallmark owner Linda Banfill is a staunch supporter of Operation Tango Mike, and her sons were care package recipients during their Marine Corps deployments.

Come check out the beautifully remodeled store, see the new inventory and support the troops!
