ma Cares has teamed up with the USO of North Carolina to provide “Patriot Packs” filled with much-needed items to service members as they’re preparing for or returning from a deployment. Packs will include shampoo, soap/wash cloth, toothpaste/toothbrush, razor/shaving cream, deodorant, a snack, a book or deck of cards, an Awake Energy Shot donated by Market America/SHOP.COM, and a note of appreciation!
