Merci Car challenge 

help the b&o support operation gratitude

The Challenge:
In 1949, the people of France filled the Merci Car with gifts for the people of Maryland, to show gratitude for aid rendered during and after WWII. Now we need your help to fill the Maryland Merci Car once again — this time for our troops! From now until Bastille Day, July 14, we challenge YOU to donate items from the list below when you visit the museum. Don't forget to stop by the Maryland Merci Car, currently in our historic Roundhouse, to see the progress we've made so far!
Donation Items:
Bring in any of the following items to help us fill the Merci Car for the troops!
• New, black crew-length socks
• All purpose wipes (single & 30-count packs or less)
• Individual Packages of beef jerky
• Sunscreen (travel-size, non-aerosol)
• Batteries (AA and/or AAA)
• Foot powder (travel-size)
• Gum
• Lip balm
• Deodorant (travel-size, non-aerosol)
