A Chattooga County resident is trying to get support for the "Halloween Treats for the Troops" campaign. Residents of Silverleaf and Goldleaf Apartments are sponsoring a platoon of 50 soldiers in Iraq for Halloween.

Organizers say that they will be accepting bags of hard candy, (no chocolate candy), cookies, cards and monetary donations for postage to send packages. These will be accepted through October 13  – any help would be greatly appreciated.  For more information call Susan Broome, 706-734-7834
