Saturday morning, Shreveport's "Operation Support Our Troops" packaged goodies to send to those fighting for our nation overseas.
Items like non-perishable food, hygiene products, and letters were boxed up.
First time volunteer, Heather Yarrington, says it's a small act of kindness that goes a long way.
"There are men and women who don't get anything, and don't have anyone back home that they know miss them. So it gives them something to fight for."
A total of 52 boxes were packaged up.
Most of them will be sent to remote areas in the Middle East.
