Longview doc does good things for troops

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - On Friday, the last items for care packages were collected at Good Shepherd Neurological Institute in Longview.

The packages will be sent to US troops in Kandahar, Afghanistan just in time for the holidays.

The project started as a small drive in Dr. Jeanette Liu's office, and just continued to grow.

Doctor Liu is a former Air Force officer.

She says it's important to show the troops how much people care.

"As the holidays are coming up and our troops are out there fighting and supporting our country, and are away from their families, this is one of the best ways that we can demonstrate to them that we really appreciate their service," Dr. Liu expressed.

The Neurological Institute is also accepting monetary donations. They say that money will solely be used to pay for shipping costs.
