Teens want to comfort troops

Original post made on Aug 30, 2009

Two Danville boys, Evan Mossop, 16, and Julian Mossop, 13, are collecting paperback books, DVDs, CDs and books on tape or CD, phone cards and socks to send to veterans receiving medical treatment at Travis Air Force Base and Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
"Many of the soldiers dealing with serious injuries spend agonizing hours with little to do, and little to comfort them," the boys said in a letter asking for donations. To arrange a pickup, call 831-1978.
"The three of us will pick up things, package and ship them," said Jim Mossop, the boys' father. He noted that a lot of different programs are run through the Red Cross, but his sons chose this way to help when they heard of troops being treated at Travis.

You are doing a wonderful thing! I will talk to people who live around me and see how we can help. How mature and kind these young men are to care and be so responsible. Thank you!!
