Lakeside Park, Your Help is Needed!

Our adopted soldiers from Fort Campbell have been deployed to Romania since June and will not return until March 2023. That’s a lot of time (and holidays) spent away from family and friends, and we’re hoping to send a little bit of home overseas to a cold airbase in Eastern Europe, close to Ukraine.

We’ve asked, and here’s what they would like:                                                                                                         Games (card games, board games, dice, etc.), flavor mixes for bottled water, beef jerky, trail mix & items easy to carry in pockets, like snack crackers, hard candy, protein bars, fruit snacks, chocolate, etc.                                           Also needed – eye drops, foot powder and hand warmers.

Please drop off at the city building by Friday, October 28th Friday, November 4th. Hours - 8am-4:30pm Mon-Fri                                          Monetary donations are gladly accepted, too!

If you’re wondering - how did we (the city of Lakeside Park) “adopt” these soldiers? It started in 2006 -please visit HERE for the complete story. 

Thank you for your continuing support,

Libby Baker and Dave Wolfer, Volunteer Liaisons for ASA Adopt-a-Unit
