What To Donate For Christmas In A Box

  • Print
Join Brian & Kellie's Christmas In A Box Project for 2014. Donate items to send to our troops overseas to make sure they know we are thinking of them this Christmas season. 
 
We use the USPS APO/FPO flat rate boxes and stuff them full of goodies.  Please donate items, like snacks, toiletries, entertainment items, Christmas decorations, cards & letters. 
 
You can start collecting now and bring them to one of our Christmas In A Box Packing Parties November 3 - 24th. Stay tuned for details on exact locations and dates.
