Lubbock Marine Parents Send 200 Care Packages To Iraq

Instead of spending the holidays with their families hundreds of Lubbock soldiers will be spending the holidays in Iraq. That's why a group of parents are dedicated to sending a little piece of home to those soldiers.

Sunday, the Lubbock Marine Parents gathered hygiene products, snacks and small gifts to fill holiday packages for 200 area soldiers.

The group operates all year, sending packages for Valentine's Day and Easter as well. They accept donations year-round.  Monetary donations can be made to the Lubbock Marine Parents account at any American State Bank Branch.

For more information, contact Becky Wilson at 543-1180. You can also email Becky at becky@secondb.org or click here to see the group's web site.
