Our class is working with our school to put together care packages for our troops overseas, because they risk their lives everyday to protect our freedom. Our troops can't just go down the street to the store to buy what they need, so we feel we need to step in and help. We are going to collect items that our troops need and ship them overseas. We will also contact local businesses to ask if they could give us a discount on things that the troops need, like Jack Links Beef Jerky. Boxes will be placed around town at local businesses also, so after people shop, they will see the box and donate items.
