Food, CDs and a special note from the sender are included with the car packages for the troops.

 Giving thanks to troops this Easter can make a real difference in their holiday. Move America Forward, a registered 501 (c) 3 organization, is seeking donations so that it can send care packages to troops overseas.

 Residents can help make the daily routine of U.S. troops serving in Afghanistan a little better, according to Move America Forward organizers.

 Their Easter care packages are loaded with all the favorites that the troops appreciate, such as premium gourmet coffee, genuine Oreo cookies and beef jerky. For a special Easter twist, packers include marshmallow Peeps.

 Also included in the care packages are personal notes written by the individual or group donating. From its experience, Move America Forward has learned that the troops need to hear that residents back home support them and their missions. If there is an address included, oftentimes, the troops will write back.
