AYDEN, N.C. - With Thanksgiving just a day away, Christmas is already on the minds of some people in Ayden.
    
NCPacks4Patriots is getting ready to pack up goodies to send to our troops around the world.

Whitehead says they still need help in many ways.

"We have still a need for the postage fund, we have a need for the items, so when people are out shopping on Black Friday go ahead and pick up some items. We need people to be on our team showing the troops that we appreciate their service and care about them year round,” said Barbara Whitehead, NCPacks4Patriots.

TOILETRIES:
Dental supplies, razors shaving gel in tubes, wipes, sunscreen in tubes, shampoo etc.
