Senator Nybo and Representative Breen Host Successful “Support Our Troops” Drive for Overseas Military

On Monday, November 16, State Representative Peter Breen (R-Lombard) met volunteers from the local Lilac Post 5815 and the Ladies Auxiliary at his legislative office to box up donations gathered during a recent “Support Our Troops” Collection Drive done with State Senator Chris Nybo. In all, more than 30 large boxes were filled with items that will be sent to overseas troops.

Community members were extremely generous with their donations, and gathered items will be packed up into care packages that will be sent to overseas troops in time for Christmas. Representative Breen extended a very special “thank you” to Blistex, Inc. in Oak Brook, for their donation of three cases of lip balm/chap stick.

Representative Breen is still collecting names and addresses for local military personnel, so he can ensure they receive care packages. Those with a friend or loved one currently serving away from home should call Representative Breen’s office at (630) 403-8135 and provide that information by November 30.
