Packing party for troops

A group participates in a packing party in May.

That left-over Halloween candy doesn’t have to sit in your cupboard all year or tempt you for late night snacks. You can donate it for the troops. The Fall/Holiday Packing Party for the Troops will take place on Nov. 20 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the home of Julie Post, located at 5810 Filaree Heights Ave. To volunteer, call Post at 310.457.7034.

Malibu residents are asked to help fill the packages by donating manufacturer wrapped sweet treats and movie DVDs. Also, donations are needed to help cover the cost of shipping each box for $30. Those interested in contributing items or helping with shipping costs should contact Cindy Linke at 310.457.4510. Donations are tax deductible.
