A local soldier and his unit are requesting assistance from friends and family back home.
The grandson of Feller and Dolly Baker of Neligh, whose name is not being released for security purposes, is currently serving in Iraq with the United States Army. The Baker family is working to create care packages to help ease the soldiers’ time overseas.
Items being requested are: hot sauce, in particular Cholula, dark chocolate, tortilla chips, adult wipes, jerky, especially homemade, tooth paste, tooth brushes and fusion razors.
Donations can be dropped off at the Neligh Public Library. The family will be sending the donations off sometime around February 14.
