Help out our troops in Iraq

-A +A
I became involved with Operation Mom when my grandson, Gregory Holt (Placer High School Class of 2006), was deployed to Iraq. When the troops are on patrol, what they eat is what they carry in their pockets. Protein bars, beef jerky, wrapped candies are great. I try to put together 100 toiletry packets for the packages we send each month. I am always in need of deodorant, hand sanitizer, dental floss, bath gel, razors and lip balm. The Dollar Tree in the Bel Air shopping center has many of the items we need. Dawn’s Hallmark by Raley’s and the UPS Store at Bell and 49 are drop-off spots for us in Auburn. Dee Rein (530) 320-4954 is our group leader. We are all volunteers and all donations go to the troops. Operation Mom, P.O. Box 515, Auburn, CA 95604, non-profit 501c3 No. 13-4233326. Thank you to all of you who help and to all of you who will be helping. Bonnie Jones, Auburn
