Sugar Land joins the fight to support Marines in combat

The City of Sugar Land has established a Fit to Fight Food Drive drop-off location at City Hall, 2700 Town Center Blvd. North, to support U.S. Marines deployed in Afghanistan and other remote areas.

Citizens are asked to join city employees and contribute small, individual packets or cans of nutritional items intended to supplement combat marines’ standard daily issue of two Meals, Ready-to-Eat (MRE) and bottled water. Donations will be accepted through Memorial Day.

Some of the food items most requested by Marines include: beef jerky; crackers (Saltine, Ritz, peanut butter); tuna/chicken packets; sugarless gum; nuts, sunflower seeds; protein bars (GNC); trail mix; electrolyte powdered drink mix (individual size Gatorade, Emergen-C and Propel); and canned fruit (small pop tops).

According to Houston Marine Moms, having a reliable, portable, safe supply of food for our troops is as valuable a weapon as the weapons they carry for protection. Read more at www.houstonmarinemoms.org
