Drive to be held in D&W parking lot Sunday, June 14

Rockford residents are asked to help make the days of soldiers serving our country a little more comfortable.  

America’s Transportation Resources (ATR) and its employees will be sponsoring a “Project Soldier Package Drive” to collect items much needed by our soldiers in active duty in Afghanistan and Iraq.  Many of our military personnel are in dire need of everyday items that we take for granted.  On Sunday, June 14 between from 12 to 5 p.m. items can be dropped off at D&W, 201 Marcell Drive NE, Rockford.

Following are items requested.  Remember, sample sizes are convenient for the soldiers as they are easier to distribute and carry.  However, all items welcome.  

Shampoo, conditioner, soap, razors, shaving cream, deodorant, toothpaste and brush, individually packaged snack items, travel size toilet paper, packaged dinners, newly released movies (watch content), batteries, disposable cameras, silly string (identifies trip wires), new magazines and books.
