ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- An organization that collects care packages for troops is hoping the public will pitch in.
A Soldier’s Wish List has fulfilled more than 4,500 personal wishes for soldiers.This week the group will throw a 50’s sock-hop to raise donations for the troops.
This sock hop will help fund postage and provide items for those packages. The event will feature authentic music, a singing auctioneer, a silent auction, food, and contests.
“It’s gonna be a lot of fun,” said founder Julia Ann Najar. “The opening is going to be a surprise so just come and see it.”
The event is September 7 at the Savoy Banquet Center in Ferguson, Missouri.
