In a benefit for Operation Sandbox, fans of "The Dukes" are gathering items to place in care packages to send to U.S. troops. The event happens on July 30, 2011 from 4-9 p.m. right there on the Square in Covington. You'll see a car show including, of course, plenty of our beloved blazin' orange General Lees as well as other fine classic cars.
Here are the items you can bring for the care packages for our brave military men and women:
Flavored drink mixes (single packs)
Microwave food (popcorn, Eazy Mac)
Tuna or spam in foil packs only
Plus the following items in travel size:
Shampoo / conditioner
Batteries: AA, AAA and C
New or used DVD movies
Basically, Rose Marie says, anything is welcome except chocolate and glass.
