American Legion Post 22, Marion, is asking the community to help collect items for care packages to be sent to troops overseas.
The postage is accounted for but there is still a need of items. Care packages mostly include snacks, toiletries, gum, lip balm, books, videos, an area newspaper, food items, socks, blankets, and seasonal items.
The care package program has been going for six years.
