Employees at the BHC Outreach Center in East Moline recently contributed three boxes of donations to the military care packages drive at the Quad-Cities Campus.

The BHC Military Students and Veterans Club hosted the month-long drive. The club is working with the USO of Illinois to send packages to troops serving overseas.

Donations from the Outreach Center employees included puzzle books, food items such as cookies, crackers, tea bags and peanut butter and personal toiletry items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, feminine hygiene products and sunscreen.

“We at Outreach want to make sure that our military members and veterans know that we support them 100% and thank them for their service,” McCabe said.
