Gifts from Home is a local nonprofit organization that sends care packages of snacks, toiletries, and more to troops overseas in Afghanistan. While the contents of the packages provides them with some of the comforts of home, most are equally as grateful for the reminder that their service is appreciated and they are being thought of. Gifts From Home is always in need of monetary donations to cover postage to be able to mail the packages. Additionally they are in need of non-perishable food items. Donations may be dropped off at Up 4 Breakfast (14359 Spring Hill Drive Spring Hil, FL 34609) or Marine Corps League Detachment 708 (8405 Sunshine Grove Road Brooksville, FL 34613).
