Lavonne Cunningham: Donations for those serving in the military

November 18, 2013 

They put up barrels at Christmas for toys for the less fortunate. That’s good, I always donate. Why can’t we put up barrels all year for our service men and women? Everyone should be able to afford one dollar for a small tube of toothpaste, a can of tuna fish, or a deck of cards. They certainly deserve better then what they get.
