NAPLES, Fla. - The Collier County Red Cross is getting ready to help the troops overseas this holiday season.
They're working on Christmas cards and gift boxes for the men and women serving in Afghanistan and need your support to mail the packages.
It will cost about $4,000 to send the 1,000 packages and get them there in time for the holidays. To send them off, the Red Cross is holding a fundraiser tonight.
Tickets are $50 for the event at the Naples Hilton. They'll be sold at the door. Inside you'll find entertainment and a silent auction. The fundraiser starts at 5pm but if can't make it and still want to help, don't worry. The Collier County Red Cross accepts donations through it's website, http://www.colliercountyredcross.org.
