Students help pack care packages for Siouxland soldiers

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) May 2009 – It’s a special treat for Siouxland soldiers coming from some of their youngest supporters.

Friday, Sioux City’s Unity Elementary hosted a special assembly to present the non-profit organization “Support Siouxland Soldiers” with items to be packed in the Armed Forces Day care-packages.

Special guests included those from the 1-113th Cavalry.

Organizers say it’s a great opportunity for kids to get involved with those serving their country. “And we use those donations to pack boxes for deployed military personnel,” said Sandy Fleck, Support Siouxland Soldiers.

Saturday is Armed Forces Day, and donation boxes will be packed at the Sioux City “Tires Tires Tires” location on Gordon Drive, from ten and two. Volunteers, and donations, are welcome.
