Eastman's Supplies for Soldiers campaign underway


A little bit of home can go a long way for military service members stationed overseas.

That is why Eastman sponsors Supplies for Soldiers, an annual initiative that sends care packages to friends, family and loved ones who are deployed overseas during the holiday season.

Now through Dec. 5, the community is invited to donate hygiene items, practical items ranging from batteries to twin-sized bed sheets, nonperishable foods/drink mixes and entertainment items such as DVDs, playing cards and inflatable sports balls to Eastman's Supplies for Soldiers campaign. A full list of acceptable donation items is available online at
