    Christmas for the troops! Need help from my fellow archers.

    My dad is currently deployed to Afghanistan and we are wanting to get Christmas care packages together for his company. Some of these guys have been over there for months and not received anything from family or friends. I know Christmas is a good ways off but these will have to be mailed out by November to make it in time. I need help from my fellow archers to get some things together for them. We are going to take care of all the shipping cost and the shipping process. All you have to do is mail me what you want to send them and we are going to put the packages together and mail them out. The only thing I ask is no cash just what you want to send...here is a short list of things that can be sent and they need.


    Personal Hygiene -


    Toothbrush
    Tooth paste
    Shaving cream/gel
    Razors
    Travel size baby wipes
    Deodorant
    Soap
    Shampoo
    Body Wash
    Tylenal
    Advil
    Motrin
    Hand Sanitizer
    Vitamins
    Baby Powder/foot powder
    Cough Drops



    Food/drink -


    Beef Jerky
    Drink Mix (Crystal Light, Kool-Aid, Gatorade, MIO)
    Sunflower Seeds
    gum/hard candy
    Cereal
    Ramen Noodles
    Granola Bars (power bars, cereal bars, etc.)
    Ground coffee
    Peanuts/mixed nuts
    Cookies (chocolate can't be shipped until after Oct)


    Entertainment -

    CDs
    Books
    Magazines
    DVDs
    Batteries (AA, AAA, C and 9 volt are most used)
    Envelops
    Pens/Pencils
    Notepads/paper
    Disposable cameras
    CD players/head phones
    travel size board games
    playing cards
    tobacco products





    These are just some items if you have any questions about something you want to send just shoot me a PM and i'll find out for you. A LOT of these guys are big hunters so any hunting magazines or DVDs would be great. Please help me keep this to the top and get these guys taken care of. If we have any service members on here that have other ideas about things they might want or need please feel free to add them here.



    Thanks,
    Zack

    Flavors for water are huge
    Reading material is huge
    Jerky
    Homemade cookies

    This is an absolutely great gesture. People often forget how something as small as a package can help moral. Kudos my friend and I will start collect stuff for this project as well. I currently keep supplies in shipping order for the guys I was stationed with as well as some of my buddies that are deployed, but will surely add in for your cause. Thanks for everyone that donates!!!

    One very important thing to add to the list if i can suggest and thats from exp from being in the sand box for a long while and that is adding BABY WIPES to the list ... These fobs are sometimes put on a water restriction due to water resources being low at times .. We were forced t take bottled water showers . We were given 2 bottles of water per day to shower with when ewater restrictions were given .
