1. Spirit of Princeton
Operation Shoe Box
After the Memorial Day Parade Ceremony, on Saturday May 26 at noon, at the Princeton Senior
Resource center/Suzanne Patterson building, volunteers from the community can assist in
packing care packages that will be sent to troops serving overseas.
The following list contains items frequently requested by U.S. soldiers and Marines serving
overseas. Please note that aerosol products cannot be shipped overseas. Also, all items must be
in their original packaging. When in doubt, think small. It is easier to ship smaller packaged
items than large, economy size.

Bars of soap
Small bottles of shampoo
Deodorant - non-aerosol
Powdered drink mixes
Instant oatmeal - individual packets
Boxes of hot chocolate that contain individual packets
Small cans of tuna with pop-tops
