Support Our Heroes Collecting Contributions

As summer temperatures approach the 100-degree mark and many find it unbearable, New Windsor resident Luz Mercado can imagine how much hotter it could be.

Mercado has gotten a first-hand account from her son, Marine Sgt. Luis Mercado Jr., of temperatures known to reach nearly 140 degrees in Iraq.

Thanks to organizations such as Support Our Heroes, founded by Mercado, U.S. soldiers fighting in a foreign land can count on receiving care packages that include the bare necessities as long as contributions allow.

Items often taken for granted, such as socks, wipes, Q-tips, toothpaste, feminine toiletries, energy bars and drinks, are among the most useful.

To find out more about this organization, call 569-9450. Contributions can be sent to: Support Our Heroes, c/o Luz Mercado, 18 Windsor Square Drive, New Windsor, NY 12553.
