Help with care packages for soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan

St. Denis Catholic Church Christian Service is shipping Care Packages to our brave soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan so they receive them before the holidays.

President Liz Fan said that the packages will be sent to be received before Thanksgiving letting the troops know how much we appreciate their sacrifice and dedication. We will accept monetary donations towards the postage and supplies and also donations of items for the boxes. We can use items such as small packages of food, sun block, chap stick, Ramon noodles, small cans of food with pop tops, gum, lifesavers, trail mix, etc. We would also suggest personal notes and cards from both adults and children.

Friday, October 28 is the deadline to receive cash donations and items to fill the boxes. Donations will be accepted at St. Denis Church, 2151 S. Diamond Bar Boulevard, Diamond Bar.

If you want more information, have mailing information on a local service person, or for pickup of donations, please call Kathleen Newe at 909 629-2711.
