The Bonds of Courage organization (formerly known as Summit Supports our Troops) is collecting DVDs as part of its annual "Take a Troop to the Movies" drive to send entertainment packages to troops serving overseas. The collection drive will continue through January 10, 2010 and DVDs can be dropped off at Assemblyman Jon Bramnick’s legislative office in Westfield.
 
Bonds of Courage has already distributed care packages to more than 10,000 men and women serving in the armed forces. The organization will be shipping the DVDs to the troops in special packages that will include microwavable popcorn, other snacks, personal notes and a miniature flag. "I am pleased to support this DVD drive again this year.  It is important for us to let the soldiers know we are thinking of them,” Assemblyman Bramnick said.
 
New or gently used DVDs will be accepted at the assemblyman’s legislative office Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. The office is located on the second floor of 251 North Ave. West, Westfield.  Letters and cards are also welcome.
 
If there are any questions about the drive, contact the legislative office at 908-232-2073 or at asmbramnick@njleg.org. For more information about Bonds of Courage, please visit www.bondsofcourage.org
