Letter: Public generosity overwhelming

A big thanks to The Forum for running articles on Sept. 15 and Sept. 19 regarding Trista Bush, Edward Jones and Treats for Troops. Due to these articles, public generosity was overwhelming.

We would also like to thank Edward Jones offices for acting as drop sites and for their donations. Many thanks to Heartland Candies of Hankinson, N.D., Giant Snacks of Wahpeton, N.D., and Jilly Beans of Fargo for their generous donations. Also thanks to many friends and family who donated candy and time. Thanks to Betty Jo Shook for her ideas.

Due to all this generosity, we were able to package and send more than 500 Halloween treat bags to Base Orgun-E in Afghanistan. It was enough for every soldier and officer on the base. The soldiers were delighted to receive the goodies.

Thanks to all for their generosity.

Bush wrote on behalf of Treats for Troops and the family and friends of Sgt. Chris Bush.
