Businesses, schools, churches, social organizations and families,
Hundreds of Siouxland Service Members will be separated from their families this Holiday Season as they serve all over the world. We are asking for the Siouxland Comunity to help us in sending our deployed Troops a “Taste of Home” for the Holidays. Please join us in collecting items like beef sticks, protein bars and drink mixes to be sent overseas! We also encourage kids to make Holiday cards and adults to write letters of support. Donations will also be accepted to help offset the cost of shipping the care-packages overseas. One care-package costs $17.35 to send and we plan to send over 200 care-packages! Please call (712) 541-8020 to schedule a drop-off of items at Support Siouxland Soldiers and thank you for your support!
