Help fill local Christmas packages for veterans
At least 400 Christmas care packages will be on their way to members of the Iowa National Guard serving overseas during the holidays.
Mandie Studer, owner of Pay It Forward Always, with help from local volunteers, started collecting care package items and packaging them to be sent to the veterans.
“It has brought people together,” she said. “It is kind of one of those feel good moments that you need now and then. This kindness that we’re doing we needed it right now. It has been just amazing.”
There are nine drop-off locations. All items need to be to the locations by Nov. 23. In Kossuth County, people can drop off items at the Algona Area Chamber of Commerce, KLGA & KLGZ radio and S&B Farms Distillery in Bancroft.
