Soldiers receive gifts from home
“So we started this project, and in order to collect the movies, we decided instead of asking for money, we would ask them to donate used music CDs,” Moore said. “We exchanged them for DVDs at the music and movies store, and now we have several branches of the Movies from Home project operating in Iraq.”
Local sponsors of this project include Ruston Rotary, Ruston Pack & Mail, Sam Goody and Blockbuster Video, which provide supplies, drop-off locations and exchange services. Other drop-off boxes include each of the residence halls on the campus of Louisiana Tech University.
