The City is seeking donations for its adopted military unit, Charlie Company, 426th Brigade Support Battalion, 101st Airborne Division, currently on a 9-month deployment. If you would like to support Charlie Company, there are several ways to help.
Donate Money & Gift Cards
The supplies that the City collects need to be mailed by the U.S. Postal Service, so we need funds to cover postage. Please make checks payable to "City of La Habra". Gift cards are used to purchase supplies.
Military service men and women serve in harsh climates, so items that protect against or minimize the effects of the environment are very helpful, as are personal hygiene items. These items must be individual/travel size
Unscented wipes, hand sanitizer, soap, body wash, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, disposable razors and shaving gel, lip balm, sunscreen (SPF45 or higher) and lotion.
Recreational and entertainment items are also needed for off-duty relaxation (no adult material). Items include current magazines, books, new release DVDs and CDs.
Food items should be packaged in individual serving sizes, and the only additive needed to prepare them should be water. Food items include Starbucks coffee (preground, not beans), tea bags, powdered drink mixes, snacks and snack mixes, sunflower seeds and nuts, beef jerky, tuna pouches, macaroni and cheese, ramen (no pork).
International phone cards, pocket fans, handwritten cards and letters thanking them for their service.
Donations should be dropped off at the Community Center, 101 west La Habra Boulevard, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information, please contact Melissa Flores at 562-383-4209 or by email.
