Send Our Troops A Piece Of Home

Many of us want to do as much as we can for our troops oversees. That's why the Edgewater Rotary Club is collecting things like VHS videos, current magazines and books, small video games, playing cards, phone cards, and stationary.

The club will pack up the items and send them out to troops to help them pass the time and feel a little more at home. Rotary club leaders say troops weren't allowed to bring many of these things themselves.

More than a dozen businesses are acting as drop off points in from Biloxi, Gulfport and Pascagoula.

Here's a list of the drop off locations in South Mississippi:

  • Salon Mode - Biloxi
  • LeBatard Architect PA  - Biloxi
  • Dr. Norowki's Dentistry - Biloxi
  • Gatlin's Apparel - Biloxi
  • Sprint PCS - Biloxi
  • Grate Grills - Biloxi
  • Boys & Girls Club - Biloxi
