Care package drive in Woodland Friday.

I just sent this to our Men's Ministry leader and I hope we can get a few donations. I am heading to the dollar store and Wal-Mart to stock up.

As a way to support deployed Marines this holiday season, five local women are asking community members to come out and support the troops by bringing in care packages or supplies Friday from noon to 4 p.m. at the Sacramento River Train depot.

"We just want to raise awareness and let people to know that people have family and friends who are deployed," said co-organizer Nicole Zendejas.

The group is asking people to bring care packages or needed items to send to troops, specifically toiletries and other day to day items.

"Just a lot of hygiene products, like baby wipes, disposable razors, socks and food that's easy to open," said Zendejas.

After the donations and care packages are collected, the group will be shipping off them to support troops in Iraq.

What a wonderful opportunity to ask you kids if they would like to spend a little of their Christmas money and bring a small lift to those who would love to be with their families this time of year.
