Care Packages for Troops


You can help show support and gratitude for troops overseas by donating items to be placed in care packages and mailed to troops stationed at Kandahar Air Base, Afghanistan.

Donations can be dropped off at the library until Saturday, December 19th.


Recommended items to donate include:

-Small packages of nuts (any type)
-Jerky
-Magazines
-Gum
-Coffee
-Sample sizes of body wash/shampoo
-Paper, pens, and envelopes
-Homemade goods such as cookies (please include an ingredients list for allergies)

Items to avoid:

-Cold weather gear (they take plenty of gear with them, so they usually aren’t needed)
-Foot powder
-Stamps (troops can mail letters for free)
