HENDERSON (KLAS) — You can help send a little bit of home to our troops overseas during the Henderson Veterans Expo and Care Package Drive in Henderson this weekend.
The event will be held inside the Galleria Mall Nov. 9-10 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free for those who wish to attend.
More than 50 local and national veterans’ organizations will participate. These organizations are dedicated to informing veterans and their families about myriad resources available in the community, from service providers to VA benefits organizations and much more.
If you’d like to donate to care packages, Operation Care Package will be in full-swing. Organizers are asking attendees to bring several items, including:
- Beef jerky
- Trail mix
- Protein bars
- Gum and breath mints
- Body wash
- Lip balm
- Foot powder
- Baby wipes
- AA and AAA batteries
Care packages are a fantastic way to support Nevada’s troops deployed far and wide.
