Sheriff Mike Bouchard also encourages parents and children wishing to participate to include notes (thank you, holiday, etc.) to the troops with the donation.
“Treats for Troops is a great way parents can participate in a community service project with their kids while showing our troops we support them back home,” Bouchard said.
