Care Packages From Home, a local nonprofit organization, is hosting its annual Packing Party on Monday, June 10th from Noon—4:00pm at the Elks Lodge, 100 NE Brizendine Road, Blue Springs. Volunteers are needed to help pack up care packages and prepare them to ship out to soldiers overseas.
Donations of items for the care packages are also needed. Some of the items most wanted by soldiers include: beef jerky, tuna packets, puzzle books, flavor packets for water, hard candies that can withstand extreme temperatures, cards/dice/games, small Nerf or stress balls, recent magazines, postage/stationery, bandanas, first aid kits, travel size toiletries, DVD movies, and paperback mystery books.
Boxes are only 12”x12”x5.5”, so bulky or heavy items are not recommended.
