Support Our Troops Presents Care Package Drive

2/28/2017
Support Our Troops’ most important goal is to cheer up soldiers.

The student organization is doing just that by holding another supply drive. The drive, called Spring Heroes, starts Thursday, March 2 and ends Friday, March 24. Jesuit is also helping with the project.

“This is truly a good cause,” senior Support Our Troops President Lauren Peebles said. “We are supporting troops who risk their lives to fight for our freedom, and we are spreading Serviam across the world.”

Students will collect supplies for troops in Afghanistan and Syria. Supplies include:
  • Packaged foods
  • Drinks (Gatorade powder, Crystal Light mixes)
  • Playing cards
  • Magazines
  • First Aid products
  • Toiletries (wet wipes, disposable razors, ChapStick, body wash, lotion, face wash, mouth wash, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner)
  • Fun posters and calendars
  • Electronics (batteries, DVDs)
  • Cards, letters
Collection boxes will be located throughout the school, including near the KIVA and Haggar.

The club previously shipped 55 boxes of toiletries and other goodies to U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan and Japan. The boxes, filled with a variety of supplies, went to four platoons in Afghanistan and another platoon in Japan.

For more information, contact club moderators Fred Schneider and Andrea Stewart.
