Interested in helping some single soldiers?

In case you didn't know, my husband is deployed. They will be returning shortly and I have to say, I can't wait :-) Of course that's probably not a surprise to any of you out there. Now that the time is coming soon, we're trying to get things together to make it easy on all of the soldiers returning. This includes creating welcome home baskets for all of the single soldiers who might not have family here waiting. The actual date of their return is confidential and can't be released which makes it next to impossible for even extended family to make travel arrangements to be here. Could you imagine coming home from an overseas deployment, spending probably the last 72 hours on a plane and countless months away from family, only to return to an empty barracks room? Most likely in the middle of the night where they can't even go to a store to pick any immediate items up? We don't want our heroes to come home to this.

The USO is kindly donating toiletries but we're still in need of many items. The majority of businesses in the area are completely tapped out to be able to donate due to being located near a mega base (Joint Base Lewis McChord) with constant soldiers coming in and out. Because of this, I'm reaching out to you, my followers.

Ideas for donations:
Welcome home letters/card
Bottled Water
Ramen or cup o'noodles
Easy mac
Coffee and Creamer
Small laundry soap
Dryer sheets
Dish soap
Toilet paper
Paper towels
Bed sheets
Anything that will make a house a home
