Please Help Support Our Troops


My name is Ashley Berdelis, daughter of the “24 Hour Agent”. I am an 8th grade Girl Scout, and my goal is to help our troops. Over 50% of the soldiers serving our country never receive a letter from home, let alone a care package while on tour. Operation Interdependence (O.I.) collects and sends personal care products, and most importantly, a personal note to the troops. My goal is to send more than 100 care packages. Please help me with what you can by either donating from the list below, writing a quick note to the troops, and/or donating money!

Together we can make a difference.
Thank you for your support!
