Families at Fort Leonard Wood are getting the help the need to keep basic necessities on hand in the wake of COVID 19.
Rylan Parrish lives on the base and his father is a veteran.
Officials with the Coalition to Salute America’s Heros teaming up with Blue Star Families of Missouri and Feed The Children handed out more than 150 boxes of dry foods, toiletries, water, juice and more to people just like Rylan over the past weekend.
Blue Star Families Director Tai Kimes tells KY 3 TV they normally would have done at least 3 or four of these events, but due to COVID 19 this is their first one.
A second hygiene drive is expected to take place this coming weekend as well.
