Local residents who missed the Yolo Military Families fundraiser on Saturday can still support “Hugs From Home” holiday care packages that will be sent to local military personnel who are deployed to Afghanistan.

Supplies, cards and cash donations will be accepted through Friday at Redwood Barn Nursery, 1607 Fifth St.; Davis Police Department, 2600 Fifth St.; Harrison Self-Storage, 2323 Second St. and 200 Madson Place; First Northern Bank, 434 Second St.; American Red Cross, 120 Court St., Woodland; First Northern Bank, 11 W. Court St., Suite A, Woodland; Tri-Counties Bank/Bel Air Market, 1885 E. Gibson Road, Woodland; and Life Point Church, 1616 West St., Woodland (Monday through Thursday only).

Suggested items for the “Hugs From Home” boxes are travel-size dental supplies, deodorant, sunscreen, foot powder, lubricating eye drops, Sudoku and crossword puzzle books, 3-by-5 spiral notebooks, cough drops, socks and men’s insoles (size large), single servings of flavored drink mixes and coffee, ravioli, tuna fish, snack foods and hot sauce.

Leftover Halloween candy may be dropped off until Monday at Harrison Self-Storage, 2323 Second St.

Cash donations will be accepted at all of the banks mentioned.

Another way to support Hugs From Home is to attend the Veterans Day dinner on Monday, Nov. 11, at The Davis Graduate, 805 Russell Blvd. in the University Mall. The barbecue on the patio is co-sponsored by the Sunset Rotary Club of Davis and The Graduate.

Tickets are $13 general and include a door prize, and $7 for children under 11. Proceeds will help pay for postage to mail the packages.

To buy tickets, make a donation or add your military loved one to the recipient list, email yolomilitaryfamilies@gmail.com.
