Reminder: Senior Center collecting donations for the troops this weekend

As I posted earlier, the Senior Center is shipping off care packages to the troops in Afghanistan and Iraq and they’re looking for donations. Volunteers will be on hand at the Senior Center this weekend to accept your donations (Saturday 9-4 and Sunday 9-3). Not sure what the troops need? Check out this list:

  • Food items, including Triscuits, Cheez-It crackers, protein and granola bars, Slim Jims, cookies, peanuts, candy, powdered drink mixes, cocoa and tuna, microwaveable popcorn, and Easy Mac.
  • Toiletries
  • Baby wipes
  • Lip balm
  • Bath products
  • Gloves and hats
  • Socks
  • T-shirts
  • DVDs and video games (new or used)
  • Books and magazines

You can also donate money toward the effort. Drawings and cards have already been donated by Southborough school kids. More details in the Metrowest Daily News.
