Help Send Santa To Our Troops Serving Overseas 10-22-2010

The sixth annual event, formerly known as Help Send Santa to Baghdad, has changed its name, but its mission remains the same.
Organizers of the Send Santa to the Troops drive will continue taking donations through Nov. 21.
They're looking for items like candy, beef jerky, phone cards, toothbrushes games, batteries and sunblock.
Last year, Send Santa to the Troops sent more than 900 packages to U.S. troops and raised about $13,000 to ship the packages.
Donations will be accepted at several locations including the Bay City Armory.
Drop off locations include:
  • The Alma Armory, 710 S. State, Alma;
  • Bay City Armory, 2510 Wilder, Monitor Township;
  • American Legion, 700 Adams, Bay City;
  • Brady's Sports Bar & Diner, 512 E. Midland, Bay City;
