Troops Holiday Wish Lists Include Toothpaste, Chapstick

This holiday season, our troops overseas aren’t wishing for Plasma Screens TVs or Stereo Systems. They need toothpaste, chap stick, deodorant, and maybe even a football.

Their needs maybe be simple for us here, in our offices and in our homes, but they are everything overseas. 

The Santa Clarita Chapter of Blue Star Mothers is collecting items for our service men and women.  They also provide gifts to Veteran’s Hospital patients.  They have collection boxes in Curves, Von’s Pavilions, WalMart at Stevenson Ranch and offices of KHTS AM-1220 in Canyon Country.  Boxes will soon be in the new Super WalMart off Golden Triangle.   Please help them with donations from the following list.
