Operation Welcome Home!

One of our Sofia's Angels reached out today with the wonderful idea of raising funds to help cover welcome home baskets for soldiers who will be returning from Afghanistan to Fort Campbell this September. Many of these young men and women are single and will be living in barracks. After a long and arduous service to our nation, celebrating their safe return with the comforts of home will be most welcome. Instead of hosting a fundraiser, we decided to bring her idea to this blog and ask our readers to contribute what they can in order to help meet the needs of these brave men and women.

Here is the list that was provided for us as suggestions for what they need most:

  • round laundry baskets
  • laundry supplies
  • toothbrushes
  • toothpaste
  • sample sizes of shampoos and conditioners, soaps, razors, lotions, and other toiletries
  • shaving cream
  • nonperishable snacks (ex: Poptarts, chips, granola bars, Gatorade, pudding cups)
  • paper plates
  • plastic silverware
  • disposable coffee cups
  • bath towels
  • hand towels
  • washcloths
  • large Ziplock bags
  • pillows

This list is only a suggestion; any and all donations of comfort items and necessities are welcome. Gift cards to Walmart are also a great suggestion, so soldiers can purchase any necessary items- and, they're easy to ship!

If you wish to help donate, please send packages, gift cards, or even letters of thanks to:

2LT Logan Byers
HQ/2-44 ADA
6746 A Shau Valley Rd
Ft. Campbell, KY 42223

We are excited to put our support behind such an incredible effort, and hope that everyone takes a moment to share this link and help spread the word. Thank you!
