Holidays for the Troops Care Package Collection Drive

The North Carolina Branch of Give2theTroops, Inc is holding a 2009 Holidays for the Troops Care Package Collection Drive.

Holiday decorations, foods, cards, holiday CDs and DVDs, and gifts for deployed military are being collected and sent in packages to troops serving in combat areas.

Items will be collected until November 30 and can be shipped to or delivered to our branch.

The organization plans to ship about 800 packages, with each package containing enough items for 12-20 members to share.

Financial contributions are also needed to help with postage costs which will be about $18,000. The NC branch of Give2thetroops serves all branches of the military serving in combat zones.

Give2theTroops, Inc. is a volunteer, national, 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization, whose mission is to support the troops through a program of care packages, cards and letters. A receipt will be provided for tax purposes.
