Norwin residents may donate items to service members abroad
Norwin-area residents may donate a variety of items for overseas military service members at the Dunkin’ Donuts on Route 30 in Irwin Tuesday.
Veterans will be at the store from 10 a.m. to noon and 5 to 7 p.m. collecting international phone cards, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, deodorant, baby wipes, puzzle books, zip-lock bags, paperback books, playing cards, razor blades, reading materials, single-serving drink mixes and microwave popcorn.
Through the “Treats for Troops” program, customers who donate items will receive a free doughnut.
Volunteers from Holy Trinity Church in Irwin will send the items to the troops. Families can submit names of area soldiers for care packages and will receive luminary bags for display on Veterans Day.
North Irwin officials also are playing host to a Veterans Day luminary event at 6 p.m. Thursday in North Irwin Park. The event will include several veterans as speakers and live entertainment.
