“We’re all very excited about this,” said Elaine Stark, Corvette Club public relations coordinator. “This is a group that has taken all of our hearts. We’re so happy to be involved.”
From now through the holidays and possibly beyond, the DBCC will collect items to be included in Creekside’s care packages to the troops. Over the past two years, the nonprofit, faith-based organization has sent thousands of boxes to troops stationed around the world.
Suggested donations for the packages include non-perishable food items such as popcorn, almonds and a troop favorite: Pop-Tarts. Non-edibles are also welcome, including shampoo, soap, baby wipes and hand sanitizer.
“If anyone has something to donate, we’ll gladly pick it up,” said Stark. “We’ve made it our mission to support the troops and we’re very excited to help.”
