Care Packages for Our Troops

Please help our Gurney Service Learning Club collect items for our troops. These donated items will be given to the USO of Northern Ohio who will then forward the shipments overseas. Since 2001, the USO has sent over 40,000 boxes of food and toiletries to our troops. The collection boxes will be located in the hallway between the main office and the cafeteria. Collection dates are November 6th through November 17th, 2017.


We will gratefully accept the following items as well as monetary donations to help defray the cost of the postage to send the boxes to our dedicated troops serving around the world. (Checks should be made payable to the USO of Northern Ohio.) The cost of postage for care packages is $17.35 per box.
