The Maxwell Legion Auxiliary, Post 218, gathered in November to put together special care packages for troops overseas.
“This year we sent 21 boxes to Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Bahrain, Cameroon, Uganda, Turkey,” said Auxiliary member Carmen Mason. “Two packages were sent here in the United states.”
The care packages contained toiletry items, magazines, candy, nuts, and no perishables.
“These items help give our service men and women a little brighter Christmas,” she said.
The Auxiliary ladies have made the care packages one of their annual projects to better serve the military. ■
