MAC Care Package Program Deadline Today

The Cheyenne area military community will have 50 soldiers and airmen away from their families while deployed to war zones this fall. MAC would like to continue sending care packages to our deployed service members with the goal of giving them a taste of home and letting them know their service is appreciated, especially during the holiday season. In order for the MAC care package program successful, they need community help in collecting items for the packages. Postage for shipping overseas tends to be expensive, cash donations will be used to pay for postage and to purchase items that are on the list but were not collected through donations. Tax deductible checks can be made out to the "Greater Cheyenne Foundation." *Soldier's Wish List:* - Snacks/Cookies - Microwave Popcorn* Chips (hard containers like Pringles) - Fritos Peanuts - Sunflower seeds* Slim Jim’s* - Granola Bars Power Bars/Energy Bars* - Store Cookies Girl Scout Cookies - Instant Oatmeal (all flavors) Crackers w/peanut butter - Crackers w/cheese - Candy - M&M’s plain M&M’s peanut* - Hard Candy Gum* - Starburst Skittles - Gobstoppers Licorice - Personal Care Items - Tooth Brushes w/paste attached Hand Sanitizers - Boot Inserts (trimable) Chapstick/Lip Balm* - Nail Clippers Combs - Disposable Razors (2x Blades) Wipes - Foot Care - Wicking athletic socks (dark calf length)* Cotton calf length socks - Non-scented foot powders* Anti-fungal cream - Blister pads Moleskin - Odor eaters Gel-in-soles - Miscellaneous - Bibles DVD movies (comedy) - D Batteries AA Batteries* - AAA Batteries* Mist fans w/batteries - Ziploc Baggies (all sizes) iTunes gift cards *Asterisk items are highly requested items from past care packages.
