NCYD Day for the Troops

Posted by Kevin Bondelli on August 22, 2007

YDNC USOThe Young Democrats of North Carolina will be holding our first-ever state-wide YD day for the Troops on Saturday, September 8th, 2007 at 10:00 am. Since my first post about this event, we have decided upon the exact places in Asheville, Charlotte, Durham, and Jacksonville.

Our purpose is to show our support for the troops and connect with them on a personal level. A large percentage of our troops are actually YD aged (between 18 and 35), and it is our aim to show all of them that we Democrats appreciate them even if we may disagree with the policies they must operate under.

We will also use this day to canvass areas across the state, so it will be a day full of hard work and great reward. Here’s the thing, we need your help.

We need your help to make this a success. We need you to volunteer some of your time on September 8 if you can. If you cannot, please help us collect some of the below supplies for the rack packs we’ll be putting together. You can visit YDNC’s website here for more information.
