This Memorial Day you’re invited to help send care packages to a unit of Marines who are deployed in southern Afghanistan. Monetary donations are accepted or other suggested items like hygiene products, non-melting snack foods, leisure items like puzzle books, novels, or writing materials. You have until Thursday, May 25 to put together the packages, which can be dropped off at locations throughout Shawano like city hall, the Shawano Community Middle School, Shawano VFW, or other business like Dunham’s, Hahn’s Clipper Shop, and Beans and Books. The goal is to send at least 50 care packages to the troops, but more would be even better. Those submitting boxes are also encouraged to write a personalized note you may want to include.
