To celebrate Independence Day and the men and women fighting for our freedom, the hard-working youth volunteers in Hands4Hope-Youth Making A Difference are gearing up for the Soldier Care Package Drive.

The event begins June 13 and runs through July 4.

Items needed include black crew socks, individual toothbrushes, dental floss, beef jerkey, non-aerosol & travel sized sunscreen, lip balm, granola bars, thank you cards and letters and more.  A full list of items needed and specific collection locations can be found at hands4hopeyouth.org.

Donations can be dropped off at the following businesses in El Dorado Hills Town Center: Wells Fargo Bank, Ruffhaus Hot Dog Company, It’s Kids Time, Olympus Café, Bistro 33, Chili’s, and Nugget Market.

The youth will also be doing a large collection at their booth for the Town Center Independence Day Fireworks Jubilee on July 3.
