Local organizations help deployed soldiers
The groups will be sending local National Guard units Christmas care packages and phone cards because their deployment doesn’t allow them to be home for the holidays.
Here’s how you can help.
Items needed for care packages include: disposable razors - for both men and women, hand warmers, body lotion, shampoo and conditioner, baby wipes, lip balm, 100 percent wool caps - crocheted is acceptable, deodorant, batteries, shaving cream, ziploc bags - pint and quart sizes, small flash lights, socks, toothpaste, toothbrushes, Crystal Light packs - assorted flavors, powdered Gatorade, bottled water, hard candy - no chocolate or homemade items.
International phone cards are also in need so the soldiers can call home.
Drop off for all items is allowed at the West St. Charles Baptist Church in Boutte Monday through Friday between the hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Any resident or business interested in helping with the Christmas projects can contact Donna Guice at 985-758-5175 or 1-318-537-5123.
Donna Barber and Pastor Randy Burns can be contacted at the church at 985-785-0584 regarding drop offs.
