Adopt A Soldier for the Holidays


The local teens from Teens In Action (or TIA), will be collecting, boxing, and wrapping items for about 20 US Marine soldiers that are currently on the front line in Afghanistan, and sadly will be there for the holidays. The items will be sent to the soldier in charge of the project (my son) who will hand out boxes to all of the guys that are not receiving anything from home, first. If you would like to help with this project, please bring a bag or box of suggested items to one of the following locations. A ten dollar donation to help cover shipping is also very helpful! The deadline is December 3rd.

2. SOUTH –
