U.S. Troops: You're Not Forgotten

Cedar Falls (KWWL) - A class at UNI needed a group project, so they decided to help our soldiers abroad.

A Community Organization Class, for the Department of Social Work at UNI is sending Treats For Troops overseas. The fundraiser was held Monday at the Valley Lutheran Church in Cedar Falls.

The class took perishable items and money to send to the troops. Items include hand soap, shampoo, deodorant, and snack food.

"One of the guys in our class just said how about we do one big group and try to raise money and send care packages to troops that are still over seas. It's kind of been a forgotten issue and were trying to show them their not forgotten," B.J. Gauna said.

The class choose a midwest troop with 144 soldiers. Their goal is to send each their own care package.
