Local charity collecting holiday donations for soldiers overseas

BERLIN, Md. –  Even though Halloween isn’t here yet, some organizations are already thinking about the holidays this winter and what can be done to thank our troops. STAR Charities, an organization in Ocean Pines, has begun collecting donations for their annual ‘holiday gifts for our soldiers’ campaign. Currently members with the Worcester County Arts Council are helping collect these donations at their location in Berlin. Suggested donations include toiletries, magazines, games, socks, deodorant, and more.

“We think it’s a wonderful program to not only support the soldiers overseas but the non-profit organization as well. We are all about fundraising and working together in partnerships with other organizations and the holidays are just around the corner so we thought we’d get involved and help this great cause,” said Worcester County Arts Council executive director Anna Mullis.

Donations will be accepted until October 31st. For more information on how you can donate you can contact STAR charities at 410-641-7667.
