AFROTC is collecting donations for American troops overseas

Help American troops overseas do their job more effectively by providing them with the things they miss from home.

The Arnold Air Society, a service organization in Air Force ROTC, is holding a collection of items for care packages that began on Tuesday, Oct. 25. You can donate at drop boxes located in Koch Commons, the Commuter Center and in the AFROTC Detachment located in the front of Foley Theater.

Your contributions will show how much the students of UST appreciate the sacrifices made by American men and women in uniform. If you know a friend or family member serving in the armed services overseas, send an e-mail to have their name added to the AFROTC list.
