VALPARAISO | Once again, Supplies4GI's will be organizing the supplies they have collected at 12:30 p.m. Nov. 21 and 22 at the Porter County Airport, Hangar C-9, 4207 Mulvihill Road.
Supplies4GI's is an organization that has been sending Christmas presents/supplies to deployed soldiers around the world for 11 years. The group partners with surrounding school systems (Tri-Creek, Valparaiso, Kankakee Valley, Crown Point) to give supplies and names, writes letters to the troops, and enlists high school National Honor Society members to assist in assembling the products the day prior to public packaging of supplies. The schools are given different "wish lists" for each grade level.
The group also solicits monetary donations from individuals and organizations to cover mailing costs. The group spent about $7,000 last year to send 425 packages.
