The rainy weather didn’t stop community members from supporting troops overseas.

Saturday marked the last day of Conway Ford’s donation collection for the Blue Star Mothers of Coastal Carolina. For the last month, the dealership has filled the bed of a truck with items for care packages for servicemen overseas. The donated items include snacks, hygiene products, and clothing items. 

The Blue Star Mothers expect to fill over 100 boxes. They plan to ship all the boxes on June 23. 

“Somebody always needs something from home. There’s always some hero overseas sometimes that doesn’t ever hear from home or never gets a box. So we try to make sure everybody gets a little something,” said Sherry Montgomery, President of the Blue Star Mothers of Coastal Carolina.
