Boise State Military Programs has partnered with campus and community groups to build Bronco-themed care packages for deployed troops from Mountain Home Air Force Base. Boise State faculty and staff were joined by members of the Blue Star Mothers of the Treasure Valley to assemble the packages, which were filled with snacks, toiletries, letters from elementary school students and Boise State gear.
They nearly doubled their goal, filling 17 boxes that were shipped half way across the world on Saturday, Dec. 15.
This initiative is part of the Division of Extended Studies’ #WeBringTheBlueToYou campaign, with the goal of supporting Boise State students anytime, anywhere. The project was made possible by contributions from the Bronco Shop, Boise State Veteran Services, the Mountain Home AFB Exchange, College of Southern Idaho Veteran Services, and more.
