12 7 faith

F.A.I.T.H. Military Support Group (Families and Individuals Thanking Heroes) recently received this photo along with a thank you card from some of the troops who have received care packages from the local group. The service personnel expressed their appreciation for the time and effort that goes into the packages. Numerous local volunteers of F.A.I.T.H. spent Saturday packing over 350 care packages for miliary heroes who are away from their family during the holidays. The list of heroes includes all branches of the military and all have a personal tie to the community, either by being from here or having a loved one who lives here. Each hero will receive at least two boxes, a food box and a Christmas goody box. The care packages are filled with toiletries, Hormel Compleats® meals, canned fruit, Skippy peanut butter, Hormel chili, soup, granola bars, snack cakes, homemade fudge made by First Methodist Church of Livingston, mini pecan pies, stockings stuffed with various items, drink mixes, hot chocolate, candy canes, candy, gum, cookies, peanuts and trail mix. All of these items are packed with love and support and then are prayed over before sending them to the heroes. F.A.I.T.H. was formed in 2006 to provide encouragement and support to military personnel while they are away from home and to the families of those serving. They meet at 5:30 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month (except December when it’s the first Saturday at 8:30 a.m.) at Livingston Physical Therapy at 305 W. Mill St. in Livingston. Since 2006, over 24,000 care packages have been shipped to the troops. Volunteers are committed and proud individuals in the community, service organizations, local church groups, local businesses, various school groups, the local garden club, the LHS NNDC and anyone who shows up to help pack.
