Rotary Club of Gloucester's Interact Club is hoping for a little support from the community with their international project. They're looking to send a few care packages to Australian soldiers currently serving overseas.

Group coordinator, Jade Spencer said they're hoping the community gets behind with by offering up donations and maybe even a few kind words.

"We'd love to get letters from the community." Jade said. "From my understanding, letters really means a lot to the soldiers."

Things that can be donated are toiletries, toothbrushes (in package), toothpaste, soaps (no liquids), ladies sanitary products, hair ties, combs, puzzle books, pens/pencils, card games, Christmas cards to send home, tennis balls, socks and hard lollies. The items are will packed up and shipped off through the Australian Defence Force and Australia Post. Donations need to be dropped off at the Gloucester pharmacy or laundromat by Wednesday, November 20 to be posted before November 25.
