Minnesota Nice starts boxing up care packages for soldiers

Minnesota Nice is already packaging up boxes to send to soldiers, according to local organizers.
One of those organizers, Linda Krueger of Glencoe, said the local group is already receiving e-mails that new units have been sent to remote locations where supplies are very limited — the nearest PX can be up to 60 miles away and it is very dangerous to travel.
Minnesota Nice sends soldier care packages through the Christmas season.
Krueger said the local Minnesota Nice group already has packed up 16 boxes of donated items, but is in need of donations to help pay for the postage. But, of course, Krueger stressed, donations of both items and cash are always welcome.
“Some people like to shop, others don’t,” she said. “Ev-erything helps.”
Those who wish to make a donation may contact Krueger at 320-864-5944. Cash donations by check can be made out to Minnesota Nice and sent to Krueger at 9525 County Road 2, Glencoe MN 55336.
