Step Up for Soldiers finishes another Packages from Home project

Volunteers were busy packing boxes to ship off to the military today. It was the fourth installment of Packages from Home. Volunteers fill boxes with cookies and treats, as a surprise for those stationed overseas. This year was the busiest one yet, with over 250 boxes stuffed and sent. Step Up for Soldiers founder, Thomas Russell said, "It shows the love and care that the community has for our troops. All kinds of personal items, cookies, and candies." The project is part of Step Up for Soldiers. They accept donations to help make these packages possible.

cost to ship

What a wonderful way to let them know we all care and they are NOT forgotten.. The shipping cost is still something I don't understand almost 10.00 per box. There has to be away our government can help out with the cost.
