Goodies for Troops
The Chino Valley American Legion Post 40 has started getting packages ready for our troops for Christmas.
Just like last year they are asking people of the community to help the troops have a good Christmas by filling one gallon zip lock bags with goodies for them.
They ask that toiletries be bagged separately from food items.
Some suggestions for the men are: soap, tooth paste and tooth brushes, razors, wipes, Aspirin, sunscreen, etc. For the women, shampoo, emery boards, loofa's, lotion, and the same things as for the men.
The food items can include, coffee, cocoa mix, candy, cookies, crackers, gum, nuts, tuna, jerky, etc.
The drop off points for your bags are: Chino Valley American Legion, Birdies Barber Shop, Penney Hubble, State Farm Insurance on Highway 89, and Depot 89 in Paulden.
The cut-off date is Oct. 24 to meet shipping deadline.
