Approximately $4,000 in donations were collected during KSBY's troop care packages pick-up event last Thursday.
For the past several years, KSBY has teamed up with Marine veteran Si Tenenberg to send care packages to troops serving overseas. Viewers are invited to drop by our locations in San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria, pick up a pre-addressed box, and take it to the post office to pay for the shipping costs.
This year, all 88 boxes Si brought to the event were picked up within minutes.
Those who would still like to contribute to the cause can find more information at troopcarepacks.org.
The event is held twice annually, around Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
