A group of Grand Junction moms is working hard to make sure soldiers overseas get a little taste of home. The Blue Star Mothers is collecting donations for Independence Day care packages.
Some of the moms were at First Christian Church on North First Street Tuesday looking at the goodies the community has dropped off.
Tomorrow they'll put together toiletries and snacks for soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Blue Star Mothers say they're doing pretty good with the basics, but they're still collecting items like water ballons and water guns.
And if you know a soldier who could use a care package you can give their name to the group.
