Hygiene for Heroes

Troops who are deployed with the U.S. Military are in need of some toiletry and comfort items. The VFW will be sending several care packages.The Ames School Student Council is encouraging all students to donate items as part of our mission to think beyond ourselves.  All service men and women would appreciate the following:


Individually Wrapped Candies. To include such items as: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (mini), Hershey’s Miniature Chocolate/Assorted Bars, Twizzlers, Fireballs, Tootsie Rolls, Werthers Candies, Lifesavers, Mints, M&M’s, York’s Peppermint Patties and Starburst Candies. All must be individually wrapped and one-serving sized. Potato Chips and Pretzels. Any brand, as long as it is a one serving sized bag.  Powdered flavored mix for water (8 oz. Bottles). Girl Scout Cookies must be given by the box.

 Toiletry Items

Baby wipes(travel size)           toothbrushes/toothpaste

Body Soap                              Razors/shave cream

mouthwash                             Tic Tacs

Gum                                       Hair ties/barrettes

Deodorant                               Floss

Hand lotion                             Chapstick

WHITE SOCKS- Some made it to their unit, but the demand is high!  They are used as boot liners - they absorb sweat, and all sizes (at least ankle high) are needed.

The Ames student will be collecting these items until December 3.

Thank you for your support.
