Adopt-a-Soldier provides care packages to Coast Guard

Amidst a tense government situation that has left many federal workers and Coast Guard members feeling uneasy about their future, a local non-profit is continuing to provide support in as many ways that they can. Nancy Hutchinson, the founder and director of Adopt-a-Soldier, and several volunteers from the Coast Guard met at Hutchinson’s home on Saturday to put together about 70 care packages for troops overseas. However, this time marked a special occasion, as some of the soldiers specifically requested that their care package is given to members of the Coast Guard instead. Hutchinson said the program exists simply to give thanks to those who serve the country in ways others don’t.




Adopt-a-Soldier sends care packages eight times a year, and will next put together a shipment for Easter in March. Hutchinson said putting together and shipping the packages are easier than one might think, and also said she was grateful that the community has completely embraced the organization’s cause.
