WASHINGTON, DC, November 19, 2013 — For the next few weeks, McLean-based charity Troop Treats is sending soap and canned foods to the Philippines. And they are asking for your help.

Troop Treats is hoping that Virginian residents will help them collect necessities for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan, many of whom are without shelter, power, food, or clean water. The organization is partnering with the US military to fly all supplies to the Philippines.

In particular, they are looking for:

Boxed first aid kits, all canned foods and boxed noodles, bottled baby formula and bottles as well as diapers, towels and blankets, battery-operated flashlights, and hotel-size soap, shampoos, toothpastes, and toothbrushes. Clothes and shoes as well as monetary donations are also welcome.

Supplies can be dropped off at various locations in Falls Church, Fairfax, Burke, and McLean. To find out more or to find a drop-off location near you, visit http://www.trooptreats.com/
