YORK, Pa. -- For the fifth consecutive year, convenience store chain Rutter's Farm Stores, operating 55 stores based here, and the nonprofit Support Our American Recruits (SOAR) will send Valentine's Day goodie boxes to area troops serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait, according to the retailer's Web site.
The organizations expect to send approximately 50 boxes, each containing items for a military unit of 15 to 20 people. Boxes will be filled with items donated by Rutter's vendors including salted snacks, candy, chewing gum and Valentine's Day cards.
