Shopping around town, almost every store has the Christmas items slowly emerging.

But, as we get ready to celebrate the Holidays with our families and loved ones, we can't forget about our military heroes.

Despite recent news about troops stationed in Iraq coming home, there are still thousands deployed in Afghanistan.

The Shreveport chapter of Operation Support Our Troops is in desperate need of donations... Making sure everyone gets a care package for Christmas.

Items needed include:

  • Instant Hot Chocolate Mix
  • Instant Oatmeal/Grits
  • Tuna In Foil Packs
  • Beef Jerky (No Pork)
  • Coffee/Tea/Sugar/Creamer
  • Ramen Noodles (No Pork)
  • Chapstick
  • Blank Christmas Cards (So Troops Can Send Their Families A Card)
  • And More.

In order to make sure everything is received by Christmas, the next OSOT packing will be November 12th.
