The Nugget Mall will be running a Valentine’s Day promotion called “Send Some Love Overseas.”
The goal is to fill up to 100 boxes to send to U.S. Marines that are currently stationed in Afghanistan. Participating mall merchants have agreed to match items sold from their shops to double the volume of items to send.
A list of requested items, from socks to rat traps, is posted in the display area next to Payless Shoes. There will be collection boxes located in this area as well. To donate money for postage, envelopes with checks made out to the Nugget Mall Merchants Association (NMMA) can be dropped through the mail slot of the mall office.
Donation boxes will be displayed through Feb. 10, and the mailing will take place shortly thereafter. For more information, contact Stacey Poulson at 789-4439.
