Now in its 9th year, the TallGrass Soldier Box Project sends care packages to troops in the Middle East twice each year – at holiday time and again at Mother’s Day/Father’s Day – with generous support from the Evergreen community. Care packages typically contain personal care items, playing cards, paperback books, knitted hats and gloves in winter, cooling neck wraps in summer and – always appreciated – cards and letters. Each Soldier Box serves 10 soldiers, women and men, and when they call or write their thanks they say the cards and letters are the most important gift.
