People's Banks Collecting Items For Overseas Troops

Peoples State Bank is partnering with the Military Support Group of Rhinelander to put together care packages for Wisconsin service members who are currently overseas.

Janel Thoune Marketing Manager at Peoples State Bank, lists some of the donations they're accepting...

"Everything from toiletries to snacks, like dried fruits, nuts, trail mix, beef jerky, ect, to clothing such as, t-shirts and socks. And, games, like handheld games (and) card games. Small gifts, international phone cards, and even batteries and stamps."

Thoune says this is great way for the bank and residents to help honor those serving in the military.

"It's a small act of kindness for us. We hope that it gives the message to our veterans and also our active service members that we do appreciate their sacrifices. They're fighting for our country and for our freedom and this is a small way that we can show our appreciation back to them."

Items are being accepted at Peoples State Bank from now until November 17th.

A full list of items accepted can be found at any Peoples State Bank location or at bankpeoples.com
