Since December 2006, through a website program called AnySoldier.com, we have been gathering numerous items generously donated by people in our community and collected in the Library. These items were sent to our soldiers serving in Afghanistan. This is an ongoing effort and we need your help organizing the donations into boxes and bringing them to the Post Office. Your assistance is welcome and can earn community service credit. Any donations to send to the soldiers would also be appreciated.
