U.S. troops deployed overseas love to receive care packages from back home. But one local military support group is having trouble sending our soldiers anything.
The cupboards and shelves are bare at the East Valley Military Support Group.
The group needs items, suitable for care packages, which would boost the morale of the troops.
Normally the shelves are full of food. With holidays coming up, the founder of the group is eager to show our members of the military service some TLC.
"It's unusual because usually it's full. I keep toiletries over there and food over here. Anything they can put in a microwave and warm up because a lot of times they don't make it in and out of the field in time for dinner, so they miss a meal so if they got something they can pop in a microwave. At least they can get something to eat and not have to wait until breakfast," says Faith Steele of East Valley Military Support Group.
The group's founder started the organization a decade ago while her two sons were fighting in Iraq.
