In the spirit of the holidays the Adopt a Soldier for Christmas program is getting ready to send their Christmas packages to our troops overseas...

This is the 12th year the program has been reaching out to soldiers overseas reminding they are loved and remembered back home. The November 21st deadline to donate is approaching and they still need more help.

How it works: Each year a local soldier is picked; they send a wish list along with the names of everyone in their unit. Every item and postage are donated by people in our community.
