What: Supplies, cards and cash donations collected for “Hugs From Home” care packages for deployed military personnel

When: 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, and at select drop-off locations through Nov. 1

Where: SaveMart in the Anderson Plaza, Anderson Road and Covell Boulevard

Yolo Military Families is mobilizing once again to collect donations for their “Hugs From Home” care packages, sent to local military personnel who are deployed to Afghanistan.

Members will be at SaveMart in the Anderson Plaza shopping center, at Anderson Road and Covell Boulevard, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday collecting supplies, cards and cash donations. Funds are needed to help cover postage costs and to purchase special items.

Suggested items for the “Hugs From Home” boxes are travel-size dental supplies, deodorant, sunscreen, foot powder and lubricating eye drops. Sudoku and crossword puzzle books are very popular, as are 3-by-5 spiral notebooks, cough drops, socks and men’s insoles (size large).

Single servings of flavored drink mixes and coffee are welcome; other popular food items are ravioli, tuna fish and snack foods, along with hot sauce.

Halloween candy also will be accepted; it may be dropped off until Monday, Nov. 4, at Harrison Self-Storage, 2323 Second St.

If you miss the Oct. 26 collection at SaveMart, don’t despair: Donations also may be dropped off between Oct. 25 and Nov. 1 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).

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

A Veterans Day barbecue on Monday, Nov. 11, also will benefit the “Hugs From Home” program. The dinner will run from 5 to 7 p.m. on the patio at The Graduate, 805 Russell Blvd. in the University Mall. It is co-sponsored by The Davis Graduate and the Sunset Rotary Club of Davis.

Tickets are $13 general and $7 for children under 11. Dinner and raffle tickets will be sold at SaveMart on Oct. 26.

For advance ticket purchases or more information, email yolomilitaryfamilies@gmail.com. If you have a loved one who is deployed to Afghanistan, forward their APO address to yolomilitaryfamilies@gmail.com.
