Holiday for Heroes – Drive to Send Care Package to MT National Guard Troops Overseas

The holidays can be hard for everyone. Whether it is a financial issue or family related. No one wants to feel left out during the holidays. Especially those overseas defending our country. That is why we are making it our goal to send a holiday care package to our recently deployed National Guard unit in Afghanistan

Granted the package will not make it to them before the holiday, they will appreciate all the same when it arrives. We are looking for specific items that we have compiled from current active duty and veterans who have a solid idea on what the troops can not only USE, but desperately NEED in order to maintain a feeling of home and quality of life.

What we need

  • Beef Jerky
  • Poker cards & chips set
  • Bouncy balls (Yes bouncy balls)
  • Baby Wipes
  • Stress balls to squish
  • Chewing gum
  • Frisbees
  • Caramel candies
  • DVD movies
  • Cracker Jacks
  • Athletic balls to play catch (soccer, football, basketball)
  • Chex mix
  • Gatorade
  • Hand Lotion
  • Toothbrushes & toothpaste
  • Deodorant
  • Microwave popcorn
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Oreo cookies
  • Pop tarts
  • Granola bars
  • Batteries (AAA and AA)
  • Pillows
  • Mouthwash
  • Foot powder
  • Christmas candy
  • Ziploc baggies
  • Twizzlers
  • Tootsie Pops
  • Instant oatmeal packs
  • Pistachio nuts in the shells
  • Hot chocolate
  • Canned chicken salad
  • Peanut butter
  • Pillowcases
  • Peanuts in the shells
  • Tootsie roll candies
  • Sudoku puzzle books
  • Canned microwavable foods
  • 15-in-1 game set

I challenge all of us in the Blaze rock family to scrape together any of these items and help. As we all know, our girl JC is overseas and we want to make her and her unit feel loved this year.
