WELLSBORO, PA - Goodies For Our Troops, based in Wellsboro and serving soldiers from throughout the country, has received a $500.00 donation from Citizens & Northern Bank. The funds will be used to purchase items for the packages sent to soldiers and to defray postage expenses.

Now in its seventh year, Goodies For Our Troops is a nonprofit organization that has been providing various types of snacks, personal items and food to soldiers who have been deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Soldiers who have any relationship to the Twin Tiers are eligible to receive packages. “That means just about any soldier is eligible,” said Dawn Pletcher, founder and co-director. Anyone may submit a soldier's name and address via mail: P.O. Box 383, Wellsboro, PA 16901; e-mail: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

“We are pleased to be able to make this contribution to help bring a touch of home to the men and women serving our nation overseas,” said Charles H. Updegraff, Jr., C&N chairman, president and CEO. “We applaud the volunteers who give their time to help sort and pack items for shipment to those who serve so far from home.”

Goodies For Our Troops is always in need of volunteers and donations, said Pletcher. Anyone with even a half hour to spare can help package the donations to send overseas. The volunteers work from Park Hill Manor at Grant and Waln Street in Wellsboro. To find out more about Goodies For Our Troops, contact Pletcher at the address, phone number or e-mail above.
