Thanks to care package supporters, new shipment planned

Editor:

I would like to thank the following businesses and individuals who donated to our program in sending care packages/food to our troops overseas:

Stephen Adornetto, Sandy Lines, Terry Dupler, Vince Popo, Charles and Rosalie Lewis, Paula Manson, Gary Matheny, Jim Karr and Robert Curran. Also a special thanks to the following businesses for their very generous donations: Buckeye Lake Marina, Guitar Parts Resource, Bowers Meat Market and the Upper Deck.

Thanks to those donors, we sent our first round of packages to a Marine Division in Afghanistan. These packages went out on Feb. 23 and totaled 91 pounds of specific food items requested by that division.

Anyone wishing to donate to this program can contact me directly at 740-467- 2333. We still need cash and donatons of goods. The most specific items needed are cereal bars, tuna, jerky, candybars, protein bars, power bars, pop tarts etc. Thanks again for your help

Chief Randall Lewis Millersport Police Department
