The Red Cross is asking for your help with donated items, that can bring a little piece of home to our troops overseas. The Red Cross nationwide is now taking donations of things troops can't get in Afghanistan. The program is designed to give soldiers some of what they miss from home.. Especially since they've been eating those military "ready to eat" meals. Things like magazines, shaving cream and razors, even Kool-Aid are needed. If you would like to donate items or even funds to cover the cost of postage, call your local Red Cross.
