Supply list for donations.

Are you in need of service hours? Are you interested in supporting US troops? Stephen Decatur’s annual “Support the Troops” drive begins Oct.1 and will last until Nov. 9! 

Up to three service hours can be earned by simply donating items that will be shipped to the men and women who defend our country. All donations can be delivered to Mrs. Chetelat in Room A-175, located in the Maryland Avenue hallway. Some items that are needed this year are: ready to eat meals, snacks (pretzels, nuts, chips, etc.), toiletries (toothbrushes, cotton swabs, shampoo), fingerless gloves, writing materials, 100 percent cotton socks and underwear, games, and reading materials.  

If the items listed cannot be provided, monetary donations are also accepted. These donations will be given to the American Legion, a group “chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veteran’s’ organization. Focusing on service to veterans, service members and communities, the Legion evolved from a group of war-weary veterans of World War I into one of the most influential nonprofit groups in the United States,” as expressed on the legion’s website (Americanlegion.org). This service opportunity is easy to participate in and goes to a great cause. If able, please consider supporting the troops and donating!
