Any Soldier Campaign at Football Game

Attention FAU fans:

FAU is taking part in the nationwide Any Soldier campaign, which is designed to collect supplies and letters for our military personnel serving overseas – with particular emphasis on those who don't normally get a lot of mail from home.

On Saturday, September 6 during our first home game of the season against Alabama-Birmingham from 2pm - 4pm the Center for Civic Engagement and Service (CCES) and Students Advocating Volunteer Involvement (SAVI) will be set-up at both south side gate entrances (A & B) to collect donations.

Please note that donations are being sought in the form of single, rather than bundled, items and must be in travel size form. Items that are needed include:

    * Individual healthful snacks
    * Hard candy
    * Beef jerky
    * Sunflower seeds
    * Assorted kinds of gum
    * Rice cakes
    * Ground coffee
    * Single packets of Gatorade or Propel
    * Current DVDs and CDs
    * Magazines (men's and women's)
    * Lotion
    * Sunblock
    * Medicated lip balm with SPF
    * Gold Bond powder
    * Shampoo/conditioner
    * Soap
    * Hand sanitizer / Anti-bacterial wipes
    * Shaving cream/ Razors
    * Dental travel kits
    * Toilet paper / Tissues
    * Laundry detergent
    * Fabric softener
    * Headphones
    * White socks / T-shirts
    * Nail clippers
    * Tweezers
    * First aid kits

Thank you for your continued support!

Re: Any Soldier Campaign at Football Game

Don't know if this was left off because this is part of a school function but when I ran one of these last year, the two Marines that came to help collect the goods at our event (both of whom had been to Iraq) said the top requested items are tobacco products (Backwoods cigars if you'd believe it) and porn. So if you're going and you really want to help our boys, they want smokes!

It's a great cause though, so bring some goods to the game since they can't take cans of beer!
