Super Bowl Sunday is your last day to make a Super Difference—at least for now.

A Support the Troops Care Package Drive organized by the Knights of Columbus (Bishop L. Kaffer Assembly/#3232) wraps up on Sunday, Feb. 2. Items can be dropped off at Romeoville Village Hall, Romeoville Recreation Center, Fire Station No. 1 and St. Andrew the Apostle Church, according to a post on the Village’s website.

Collection items: General hygiene—insect repellent, eye drops, men’s and women’s deodorant, shampoo, toothpaste, razors, chapstick, wet wipes. Also—canned food items (soup, tuna, chili, ravioli, stew), dried fruits and nuts, ground coffee, pre-sweetened powdered drink mixes, beef jerky and beef sticks, batteries (AA-AAA), cookies, granola bars, protein bars, gloves, hand warmers, stamps, work or tube socks, white or tan T-shirts. Hand-made items are welcome such as scarves, no-sew fleece blankets and quilts.

Each box costs $12.35 for shipping of a single care package, so donations for postage are needed as well.

All donations are tax deductible. To have a package sent to a specific service man or woman serving overseas or for more information on how you can help, contact Don (815) 886-6623.
