Donations wanted for soldiers returning home
Fort Bragg groups are looking for donations to help welcome soldiers when they return home

FORT BRAGG (WTVD) -- Military groups at Fort Bragg are asking for your help.

The 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade Barracks Welcome Project hopes to have a welcome basket available for every single soldier returning to empty barracks rooms.

The group said that single Soldiers often return to empty barracks rooms because their belongings are still in storage.

"Our goal is to supply each room with a Welcome Home Basket so these soldiers can relax instead of going out to purchase these items," the group said in a post on social media.

Each basket will have the following:

  • Laundry basket
  • Sheets
  • Blanket
  • Pillow
  • Toiletry kit
  • Laundry detergent
  • Shower curtain
  • Towel
  • Assorted snacks
  • Drinks
  • Welcome Home Card

The group has set up an amazon wish list to make it easier for you to purchase and donate these items.

All donations must be received by September 15.
