Operation Pocket Field Pillow (PFP)

Chesapeake Public School Teachers Join In

Posted on: January 17, 2011

Just a call or two was all it took for teachers at local middle and high schools in Chesapeake to join Operation PFP. Judy Renfrow and her students at Western Branch Middle School are sewing and stuffing. Willie  Anderson and her students at Western Branch High School are stuffing and bagging. And now 3 more teachers have volunteered not only their time, but their money as well.

Leona Parker, a teacher at Hickory Middle School, contacted me after attending a teachers meeting with Willie Anderson. Willie mentioned Operation PFP (thank you, Willie!), and Leona called me asking how she and her students could help. She even suggested a meeting with the 2 of us, along with 2 more teachers.

We met a few days ago; in the photo above from left are Cindy Mansfield (Great Bridge Middle School), Linda Cotton (also Hickory Middle School) and Leona. Each of these teachers was genuinely concerned about the state of our troops, and each enthusiastically volunteered the services of their sewing students. The teachers took 100 ACU field pillows and 100 fleece pillows to complete.

Operation PFP is made possible in part by my small business, Just For Baby Gifts, donations of ACU by the Carlisle Finishing Plant, fleece donated by Polartec, supplies donated by Brother International, and by the untold hours of work by hundreds of proud and grateful American volunteers.

...til they all come home
