Care packages gathered for troops in Afghanistan

Posted: Updated:

A group is collecting items for soldiers who are stationed in Afghanistan along the Pakistan border which is an isolated and dangerous area.

They don't get many items that they need brought to them.

Organizer Jodi Beach says they're collecting items like gum, magazines, pens, books, popcorn, bug spray and tooth paste.

They'll send the items out in care packages each week.

This drive is close to her heart because her cousin is serving.

"He knew he was always going to be part of the Army and it has been his life. He's been a huge inspiration to my son. My son wants to be just like him and that's why I decided to do this," Jodi Beach said.

Jodi says the soldiers out there say they look forward to getting these packages.

If you want to donate you can email Jodi.   Jodi.Beach@k12.sd.us
