American Legion Post 569 will be sending Care Packages to the troops.

Two Imperial Valley soldiers will be receiving boxes of goodies to share for the holidays. Each of the two soldiers, one stationed in Korea and the other in Poland, will receive the 65 boxes decorated by Fifth grade students at T L Waggoner School in Imperial. The boxes will contain items like gum, cocoa, protein bars, decks of cards, socks, beef jerky and other essential items. The boxes will be assembled Sunday at the American Legion Post on Broadway in El Centro
