Some local organizations are collecting necessities to make sure troops on deployment are remembered and taken care of during the holidays.
The Livingston County Farm Bureau, the Pontiac Area Chamber of Commerce and the Fairbury Chamber of Commerce are teaming up to collect items for Operation Care Package, which collects gifts and essentials to send to the troops serving overseas.
Needed items include socks, disposable razors, small gifts, individually wrapped food items, and batteries. For a complete list of items or to drop off your donations call or visit the Livingston County Farm Bureau office at 901 W. Howard Street or the Pontiac Chamber at 210 N. Mill Street, both in Pontiac, and the Fairbury Chamber located at 101 E. Locust Street in Fairbury.
