BECKLEY, W.Va. – PRESS RELEASE:  Concord University's Beckley campus at the Erma Byrd Higher Education Center will be collecting items for care packages to send to the currently deployed troops from the local area.

During the first two weeks of November, donation boxes will be open at the Erma Byrd Higher Education Center in Beckley and at the Concord University Athens campus at the Welcome Center in the Jerry and Jean Beasley Student Center.
 
Some food items needed include: canned food (like beef ravioli or soup), chips, cookies, crackers, granola bars, Ramen noodles, hot chocolate, beef jerky, and drink mix packets.
