We used to have a few companies that donated toothbrushes and sunscreen, but they no longer do that.
If your office has empty copy-paper boxes, we can use them for shipping items.
We have a local church that has a benefit auction for us in the spring. All items for the auction are donated by local businesses.
If you would like to raise funds or collect items for us, your church group, Scout unit, 4-H club, school, etc., can make it a project to help support our troops.
Your office, store, restaurant, etc., can host a donation can that we will supply for you.
We have soldiers who have contact with children in the streets and hospitals, so we also send children's clothes, shoes, school supplies, etc.
At this time, we have many boxes of crayons, but we need coloring books.
We do occasionally receive a thank-you note from some of our soldiers. They are very appreciative and thankful for everything and anything we send to them. The correspondence is not frequent because they are obviously very busy and don't have much downtime.
Some items that we don't often receive are multi-vitamins, safety pins, nail clippers, socks (men's and women's), nasal spray, canned soups and Tylenol.
If you don't have time or don't like to shop, a cash donation, check or money order or a gift card from Wal-Mart, BJ's or Dollar Tree would allow us to do the shopping for you.
If you would like to visit our site, please call 829-8627 to arrange a time and day.
We have had 4-H groups, Girl Scouts and others come with their donations to see how and where they go.
Your empty ink cartridges and old cell phones (working or not working) may be turned in for money that will be used to purchase items or postage to continue the project, also.
