The Northwest Florida Veterans Task Force organization regularly sends out packages to our deployed troops.

The GCSC Armed Services Club will be collecting items to assist in this project. This will be a year-long project so donations can be made anytime you wish.

A box/container will be placed in the GCSC Veteran/Military Affairs Liaison office for anyone wishing to donate items for the packages.

Items will be taken once a month to the Northwest Florida Veterans Task Force so they can be included in the packages.

Below is a detailed listing of suggested items to send. Please use as a reference when deciding on what to donate. Also, the listing doesn’t include items for the troop’s K-9 partners. Some items suggested for our four-legged troops are; various toys (Kong brand is the best), Science Diet dry dog food, dog brushes,etc…
