St. Ann’s Church in Bethany Beach is collecting items to be sent to the troops overseas. The items they need are the following: water, phone cards, writing paper, pens, pencils, disposable razors, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, sunscreen, lip balm, insect repellent and deodorant.
They also could use small cans of fruit, meat (like sardines or sausages), hard candies, nuts in cans, disposable cameras and heavy socks.
Many of these things can be purchased very reasonably at Dollar General.
All donations can be left at the Masterson Center at St. Ann’s. Items do not need to be wrapped and the U.S.O. will come from Dover AFB to pick up the donations on/about April 20 to 22. Any items of value (like cameras or phone cards) should be left in the office.
