Support Our Troops!

GMS is partnering with SupportOurTroops.org to collect donated items for Care Packs to be sent to our troops overseas! Let's let our troops know we appreciate them and the sacrifices they are making to protect our freedom and the freedom of others. Participation in this holiday drive is voluntary.

There are collection boxes in the GMS hallway. Donated items must be new and unopened. Some of the most requested items are: candy, gum, chapstick, toothbrushes, movies, music cd's, small earphones, beef jerky and beef sticks, peanuts and nuts in cans with lids, AA and AAA batteries, books and magazines (clean content).

Items will be collected through December 18th. Thank you!
