When Egg Harbor Fire Fighter and Army National Guard member Jason Staats deploys to Afghanistan, he and his unit will be getting treats from co-workers and the community. Egg Harbor Fire Fighter Ashley Bittorf is starting a specific collection for care packages for Staats and members of the National Guard 2nd Battalion, 127th Infantry unit. The guard members are currently training at Ft. Bliss, Texas and will deploy to Afghanistan in February. Bittorf says care packages will be shipped out monthly while the unit is stateside and overseas. She says the soldiers have some simple requests for goodies.
The collection will be processed by Adopt A Soldier Door County. Bittorf suggests you add a note to your donation if you want it to go specifically to the 2nd Battalion, 127th Infantry unit. Donations are being accepted at the Egg Harbor Fire Station and Town Hall on County Road I in Sturgeon Bay and the Sister Bay-Liberty Grove Fire Station on Mill Road in Sister Bay.
