CARTHAGE, MO.--- Cloud's Meats in Carthage is putting together care packages for soldiers fighting in Afghanistan. For every donation of beef sticks or jerky, Cloud's will match it. The program is called "Here to Serve" and the group sends hundreds of care packages this time of year. This is the second year Cloud's has participated and the owners have heard some positive feedback from the soldiers.
"I've spoken to many troops that have deployed out there and come back, and they always comes back, and because most of them are local and they get a little bit of home," states Andy Cloud, Cloud's Meats.
You can drop off donations at both Cloud's locations in Carthage. The deadline is December 1st.
