Thousands of U.S. troops deployed overseas have received care packages from Give 2 the Troops, which is a national non-profit with a branch in Greenville.
Donated items are packaged up by volunteers and shipped off. Each care package contains enough goodies for the recipient to share.
The most popular items U.S. troops love to get: Beef jerky, tuna, hand sanitizer and baby wipes.
Branch Director, Barbara Whitehead says troops request many items. Some are functional, while others may simply be a little piece of home.
Give 2 the Troops accepts donations at its Greenville location on Landmark Street.
