The holidays are a time to enjoy quality moments with friends and family. For troops stationed overseas, those close, intimate moments aren’t always possible. Sutherlin, OR, resident Pat Greer hopes to bring the troops a little closer to home this season by sending them holiday care packages.

Greer prepared nearly 200 Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes filled to the brim with items such as books, magazines, toothpaste, soap, and jerky for Charlie Company from the Oregon National Guard. The unit, currently on a one-year deployment in Afghanistan, will receive the packages just ahead of Christmas to help brighten their season.

“We managed to get them all done just under two hours, all while still helping customers,” said Sutherlin Postmaster Lynne Tonn.
