The North Carolina Branch of Give2thetroops is now collecting items for care packages for deployed troops in its “Beat the Heat” campaign. Troops deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan are conducting their missions in temperatures over 120 degrees during the summer months. Items needed include snacks such as jerky, tuna in pouches, protein powdered drink mixes, nuts, granola bars, dried fruit, single serving drink mixes to add to bottled water, dri-release tee shirts, white socks, small electric fans, cool wraps, eye drops, lip balm/chapstick, sunscreen, DVDs, sports equipment and toiletries. Monetary donations are also needed for postal costs.
A complete list can be found at the website www.give2thetroops.org.
