Give 2 the Troops needs help with postage

Posted by Debra Worley - email

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - More than 100,000 members of the U.S. Military are fighting a war overseas, and many don't have important basic necessities.

An organization called Give 2 the Troops has been providing hygiene and other items for troops since 2002, but they need your help.

The North Carolina branch needs money to pay for the cost of postage to send packages to the men and women deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

They have already spent $14,000 in postage this year, because it's hard to reach many of the troops in remote areas.

If you would like to help, call Give 2 the Troops NC branch, (252) 321-8227 or for more information visit
