Support Ongoing for Troops
Interest has grown among members since the Christmas party to continue an on-going contribution to support our troops overseas. A regular collection of items will be made at our monthly meeting to send to the armed forces serving overseas. We will collect: toothpaste, toothbrushes, socks, deodorant, dental floss, cotton balls, disposable hand and feet warmers, toilet paper, razors, hair gel, shampoo, soap, chap stick, wet wipes, foil packets of chicken, dried fruit, energy bars, snack cakes, hot chocolate, candy, beef jerky, playing cards, batteries, puzzle books, and blank greeting cards (to send notes back home).
In addition, we encourage donations of money to defray the cost of shipping packages to the troops.
