Georgia Southern University Collects More Than 5,200 Snacks for Soldiers

10-03 Georgia Southern University Collects More Than 5,200 Snacks for SoldiersGeorgia Southern University collected more than 5,200 “Snacks for Soldiers” in September as part of the Adopt-A-Soldier program to support troops serving overseas.

The University collected non-perishable snacks that will be shipped to soldiers in the 438th Expeditionary Wing serving in Kabul, Afghanistan. In addition to snacks, the University collected cards for the soldiers and monetary donations to help offset the cost of shipping the snacks.

More than two hundred Georgia Southern University student volunteers spent the weekend sorting the snacks and preparing them to be mailed to the troops. The University is still collecting monetary donations to help offset the cost of shipping. Anyone who would like to donate may call the University at 912-478-5555.
