from one of our bakers........
I spoke with Brent, who is my close friend and to whom we sent packages. He asked me first off to thank everyone who is baking and sending boxes to send to the troops. When I asked, he gave me the following list of things that really came in handy for the troops:
travel-sized toothpaste, deodorant, toothbrushes, etc
individually packed handiwipes and eye wash
packets or cans of tuna or chicken
gum, candy, etc
individually packed nuts, etc
cookies, of course
granola and granola bars
i thought maybe sunscreen, though he didn't mention that
I hope that helps!
Thank you for all that you do,
