Help us send holiday cheer to overseas troops!
Now through November 8, Mid-Ohio Energy is collecting personal care items to be sent in Christmas care packages to military deployed overseas.
Packaged, unopened personal care items can be donated at the co-op's Kenton or Marion office locations during office hours.
All items received will be donated to the Blue Star Mothers of Hardin County's Christmas Care package collection.
The Blue Star Mothers’ annual Christmas care package donation sends personal care items, snacks, and other comforts to troops stationed in areas where it is hard to obtain such items. Last year’s shipment sent a total of 368 boxes to 11 different locations, including Afghanistan and Turkey. With the help of Mid-Ohio Energy and its members, the group hopes to make this the biggest year yet!
For more info, visit the Blue Star Mothers of Hardin County on Facebook. For any volunteer or donation inquiries, individuals or businesses are encouraged to contact the Blue Star Mothers’ Kathy Tracy at 419-674-3516 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
