Campaign to send needed items to overseas troops

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- This Valentine's Day, there's a campaign under way to make sure our men and women serving overseas are not forgotten.  Metro Councilwoman Madonna Flood kicked off her Doing Our Part from the Heart campaign this morning.

This is the seventh year for the campaign, which asks for donations to buy simple items that are difficult for the troops to obtain.  Flood explains those include, "...razors, shaving cream, toothpaste, soap, talcum powder, a few snacks that are non-perishable, to send over to Iraq and Afghanistan for our men and women who are fighting so bravely over there."
