A Port Clinton area soldier stationed in Afghanistan recently reached out for support and VFW Post 2480 is answering the call. Sgt. Kenneth Bacon’s unit is collecting school supplies to hand out to the local children. In addition, Bacon pointed out that some men in his unit don’t receive care packages from friends and family in the states. The soldiers could use bathing supplies and snacks.
Rose Isaac’s Port Clinton Kids Care Club has begun working on a campaign to collect the school supplies and requests have been sent out to some local businesses.
To make a donation for the kids or the soldiers, a collection box has been set up in the VFW Canteen, 214 Madison St. To have your items picked up, call 419-734-9981.
