In cooperation with Whish Body, a bath and body care company sold in Nordstrom and through the Internet with companies like Birchbox, SOT provided various scented body butters and washes, in flavors like orange cream and lavender.

No donation is too big or too small, and anything given supports the troops while they do the difficult work we admire them for. Though the regular Joe and Janet may use products like these on a daily basis, it’s easy to forget that our men and women in the armed forces might not have access to the common creature comforts the rest of us do. On a daily basis, soldiers deal with the visceral and psychological challenges of serving our country, and anytime we can provide, it’s a way to ease the burden of that difficult job. The goods arrived and Maj. James -- was excited to disperse them amongst the soldiers and their families, saying: “Many thanks for this donation. Just received it today and will get it out to our Service Members!! Best regards.”
