There is still time to donate items, volunteer or recommend a service member to receive a care package. The 12th annual Troop Care Package Drive is hosted by the Chippewa Valley Family YMCA, Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company and McDonell Central Catholic High School.

Donated items can be dropped off at all three participating locations in Chippewa Falls. The group is also still accepting names of service members who deserve a care package.
