Annual program provides care packages to troops
Defend the Holidays, a program organized by Putnam County and United for the Troops, an organization founded by a Mahopac couple, has launched for the season.
For each $15 donation, a care package is sent to U.S. military personnel serving overseas. Donors can also provide a note or a card to include.
The packages include cookies, DVDs, CDs, snacks and other food and T-shirts. To donate, see putnamcountyny.com/carepackage.
