Support Siouxland Soldiers held a drive today at the Southern Hills Hy-Vee. They collected hygiene products, food and other goods from Hy-Vee shoppers.
A lot of the soldiers will be coming home in July, so, in honor of Armed Forces Day today, Support Siouxland Soldiers decided to end their stint with a bang.
Brittany Dekker of Support Siouxland Soldiers said, “It’s been awesome, we have an entire car load of stuff so a lot of people have come out and shown their support for these men and women that are deployed, it really means a lot to us.”
Starting at 6:30pm on June 2nd, the group will be packaging the donations at the Armory by the Sioux Gateway Airport and then sending them out.
Anybody is welcome to come and help. You can also specialize a package for a particular soldier.
