CARSON CITY, NV - November 14, 2011
This morning, Governor Brian Sandoval announced he and his offices are holding a supply drive for Nevada troops during the month of November. Items will be collected at Sandoval’s office in the Capitol in Carson City and his office at the Grant Sawyer Building in Las Vegas.
“This summer I was honored and privileged to travel to Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait and meet with our brave men and women,” Sandoval said. “After learning that supplies are much-needed, we decided to hold a drive for our troops.”
Sandoval’s offices – open Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm – are particularly seeking donations of DVDs, energy bars, foot powder, razors, calling cards, instant coffee, wipes, chapstick and video games.
“Our fellow Nevadans and Americans are putting themselves in harm’s way every day,” Sandoval added. “Through this drive, we are hoping to send them something to bring home a little closer. I encourage all Nevadans to participate.”
Donations will be accepted through Friday, December 2nd. Blue Star Mothers both north and south will assist in the packing and shipping of collected supplies.
