(KMOV)-- Restaurants in Ferguson will join together this holiday season to support the troops.
The initiative, called A Soldier’s Wish List, pairs shoppers here at home with soldiers overseas.
Shoppers buy gifts, which are then wrapped by ASWL volunteers, and sent to units in Iran, Afghanistan, and Egypt.
Postage last year cost almost $10,000.
The city’s restaurants are raising funds for the effort.
Participating restaurants include: Marley’s Bar & Grill, Hill Brewing Co., Cose Dolci, The Corner Coffee House, CORK Wine Bar, Vincenzo’s Italian Ristorante, Mimi’s Subway Bar and Grill, and the Whistle Stop Cafe.
Hill Brewing Co. will feed the volunteers as they wrap gifts.
All packages will arrive on December 4th if enough funds are raised.
Marley’s Bar & Grill will also host a raffle and silent auction on November 21st.
