Operation Minnesota Nice to continue for another month

Local Operation Minnesota Nice volunteers Linda Krueger, Colleen Benjamin and LaDonna Stuber have decided to keep sending packages to military personnel for another month.
According to Krueger, some of the units to which Operation Minnesota Nice are connected are so remote or in disclosed areas and the packages are often their only opportunity to get needed supplies. The local volunteers are sending packages to five units.
“A few of them live in tents and it’s very cold at night,” Krueger said.
