Operation Deployed

Want to show our guys and gals overseas that we’ve got their six? OIS will be collecting items for our deployed troops and sending out care packages two times per year. How can you help? Collect items, pack the boxes and donate for postage to ship them overseas. Below is a listing of the most requested items for the deployed troops. Items can be dropped at one of two locations:

Parkside cleaners

22645 Pontiac Trail South Lyon, MI 48178

ois office

10079 Colonial Industrial Drive, South Lyon, MI 48178

If you would like to join us for the packing party, we will be posting dates and times on our website and the Operation Injured Soldiers Facebook page.
