One person’s vision may make the holidays better for around 70 Sheridan troops currently deployed overseas. One of the largest deployments of Wyoming troops in the state’s history has been going on since this spring. One Sheridan woman is spearheading a campaign to make sure that every one of the Sheridan troops gets a package from home this holiday season. Katie Luthy explains why she’s putting so much time and effort into the program.
A crowd gathered at the WYO Theater on Friday to take a community photo that will be included in all the packages going to Wyoming soldiers. Sheridan’s Mayor and 2 city councilors made an appearance at the event.
Luthy says volunteers are still needed to help prepare the packages and they could also use any donations available. Just postage alone to mail the packages will be nearly a thousand dollars.
