military_yellow_ribbon_flag-300x299We would like to start sending packages to our troops again.  We have a really good customer, and Mom, who is going to the Middle East for 6 months.  We want to support Diane and her troop mates by providing care packages from home.  We will have a box at the front of the store if you’d like to contribute to this effort. You can also “Google” other items that are helpful.  Here are a few items Diane suggested:

As far as what to send:

  • The standard NO pork products of any kind
  • Any type of hard candies or gummies work well (gummy bears seem to be a favorite among my guys)
  • I would avoid chocolate since it melts in the mail (very hot and packages take about 2 weeks to arrive)
  • Magazines of any sort regardless of how old
  • Sport drink mixes. We live on bottled water over there and it breaks the monotony (electrolytes are an added bonus)
  • Those cooling or sports towels (sometimes given out at races but I’m not sure of the name)
  • Notes and cards

There will be a box in the store for you to drop off your donation!  Thanks for supporting our Troop!
