Community Action volunteers last week packed 60 boxes of personal care products, packaged food, magazines, games and other activity items for soldiers.

Kristen Ostrander of Kendall led the “Treats for Troops” effort. Many local families will miss close holiday interactions this season because a member of their family is serving with the military overseas.

Besides the items, each solider also will receive a thank you note from Kendall fifth and sixth graders.
