Sonora, Ca — Operation Mom is out today at Courthouse Park in Sonora collecting items for U.S. troops overseas.
The majority of the items collected will be sent to a Marine base in Iraq in which many of the troops recently lost most of their personal items in a fire.
The organization is also selling t-shirts, pins and bumper stickers to help purchase additional items and mail the care packages.
Residents can drop off non-perishable food items or cash donations until four o´clock this afternoon.
