Tuesday, members of the Elks Lodge 1598 mailed almost 200 pounds of powdered Gatorade, Tang, sugar and other powdered goods overseas.
They say they got the idea from watching our programming and decided to raise the money to make it happen.
The bulk mailing cost around a hundred bucks. The Elks hope to inspire others to do the same.
Wade Stephens of the Elks Lodge 1598 says, “It always makes us feel good, and being retired military myself, hey, that makes me feel even better!”
Post Office officials say you can also help out the troops by buying phone cards to send overseas. So far they have sent more than 300 phone cards to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.
