For my leadership project I decided to write letters to service people and collect items to send overseas in care packages.  I knew that the soldiers like to receive mail and care packages from back home so I wanted to give back to them since they are sacrificing time with their families to keep our country safe.  The organization that I chose to go through is called Blue Star Moms of the East Bay.  I asked family & family friends to contribute what they could and I used my own money too.  I bought things such as snacks, toiletries, batteries, etc and I also wrote letters to be included in the packages .  The website that you can visit if you would like to show your support to our troops is
