Care Packages for Troops - December 7th from 3 pm to 6 pm
Come join the Veterans Council in creating care packages for the Soldiers of the 109th Field Artillery Regiment! We will be in the Henry Student Center Lounge on Friday, December 7th, from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM.
The Holidays are a rough time for any service member to be away from friends and family, and as those who us who have received care packages while deployed can tell you, it really does lift the spirit to know that someone took the time and effort to provide even just the basic necessities. The 109th will be deployed to Kuwait during the holiday season and space is usually very limited. Many go without some of the smaller creature comforts listed below unless we send them.
We will have some supplies on hand thanks to donations we have collected from local businesses and past fundraisers; however we would like to encourage you to bring prepaid international calling cards, crossword puzzles, books, hard candy, sunflower seeds, gum or any small non-perishable item that you would like to send to the Soldiers. Although we know the Soldiers would love alcohol and adult entertainment materials, please do not bring either. They cannot be shipped to soldiers overseas as per military regulation.
Please help us in helping to lift the spirits of the Soldiers of the 109th during their deployment.
