Often these events don’t receive the type of publicity they deserve at NC State athletic events, so please take the time to read this information about a great cause.
The Back Home Box Foundation will partner with NC State and the Wolfpack Club at the annual Military Appreciation Day Football Game on Sept 16.
NC State vs Cincinnati on Thursday, Sept 16 is Military Appreciation day at Carter Finley Stadium, and for the third year The Back Home Box Foundation is happy to partner with NC State football fans and the Wolfpack Club in collecting items to ship to our servicemen and servicewomen deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq.
We will have tables inside on the concourse at Gate 3 West Main, Gate 6 Murphy Center, Gate 9 East Side, and Gate 13 North at Fan Zone. Look for the flags and the signs.
Please click on the wish list to see what the troops need and miss. If you donâ€™t have time to shop, any funds contributed will be used for postage for the Care Packages.
Last year the items and funds contributed enabled the Back Home Box Foundation to ship 437 Care Packages. Weâ€™d love to do more this year.
If you can, please write a note to a soldier and include your regular mail address and e-mail address so you can hear back from these brave young men and women. Weâ€™ll make sure to include them in the Care Packages.
These are special men and women, and they need to know they have our support. God Bless Them All.
