We are pleased to announce Season 2 of sending Holiday Care Packages to our US Troops serving overseas in Honor of a fallen Marine from Michigan ~ U.S. Marine SSgt. Raymond J. Plouhar (May 26,1976 - June 26, 2006).
SSgt. Plouhar was killed in action in Iraq by a roadside bomb. Please see the YouTube link below for a song that was created from a poem written by Raymond.
Your donation includes one care package shipped to a U.S. Service Member serving overseas: $25 worth of requested goods + $15 shipping fee.
If you would like to get involved and help with a physical donation ~ items we would like to collect include: hand warmers, batteries (AA and AAA), baby wipes, hard candy, gum, puzzle books, small meals (tuna packets, canned food with pull tabs), drink packets, magazines, travel sized hygiene items (toothpaste, hand sanitizer, foot powder, soap bars), DVD's, Zip Lock bags (all sizes), Icy Hot muscle rub, pens, pencils, notebooks, granola bars, sunflower seeds, beef jerky, socks (black or white), lip balm, coffee, homemade goodies (please wait until last day, Nov. 15, to ensure freshness), & anything you think they could use (that follows the guidelines per https://www.usps.com/ship/apo.htm).
We are asking school teachers to have their classes make Holiday cards and notes to cheer the troops up - the Service Members LOVED them last year!
