Treats for Troops
The WVMS student council has been made aware of the need for snacks for our troops overseas. This will become a year-long project, so there will be multiple opportunities to donate during the year. The troops have asked for non-perishable snacks. These may include but are not limited to the following: beef jerky, PB crackers/cheese crackers, individually wrapped Cheez Its (or any lunchbox items), applesauce or fruit pouches, gummies, blueberry Belvita bars (requested), energy/protein bars (also requested), gum or mints, hard candies (that don’t melt), graham crackers, gold fish, pretzels, and cereal bars.
Keep in mind, these usually take two weeks to ship. Make sure they cannot melt or are easily smashed.
These items will be collected after each of the breaks.
Help support your troops!
