Barksdale Federal Credit Union is asking for help with donations to be sent to the troops. They will be collecting items until June 14.

KTBS listed off several items as an example of what to donate. They listed items that included snacks like beef jerky, granola bars, and cookies. Don't forget to consider donating toiletries. Think about what you would like to make you feel just as comfortable as you would be at home. The items we use every day and don't even think about like toothpaste or deodorant.

If you don't have time to purchase specific items the Barksdale Federal Credit Union will also be taking monetary donations as well. Also, why not make this a family effort and a teaching moment.
