College Of Nursing Collecting Donations For Military Care Packages

The College of Nursing is collecting items to be used for care packages as part of Military Appreciation Week. The packages will be delivered to deployed service members through State College-based organization A Soldier’s Hands.

Since 2007, A Soldier’s Hands has distributed more than 6,400 care packages containing skin-care products like hand cream, lip balm, and sunscreen, each with a personalized thank-you note. The organization’s mission is to “send hand care products inside a care package to every single service man and woman who is deployed defending our freedom, one unit at a time.”

Items needed include hard candy, tissue paper, ribbon, and handwritten letters and cards. Monetary donations also are being accepted and checks can be made payable to “A Soldier’s Hands.”

All donations can be dropped off at Rooms 203B, 216, or 304 of the Nursing Sciences Building before Wednesday, October 31. For more information, email Autumn Hannagan from the College of Nursing outreach office.
