TK's Family Restaurant in Colona, Illinois, has a menu of items that make up a wish list for a 20-man platoon that is stationed in Afghanistan. The Colona Business Association's “Adopt A Platoon” program is part of the national Adopt A Platoon program(www.adoptaplatoon.org). This organization asks people to send mail and donate everyday items to the troops overseas.
The Colona Business Association sends gifts to the troops all year, not just during the holiday season. Please drop off your donations at the Colona Bank, Blackhawk State Bank's Colona branch and, of course, TK's Family Restaurant. While you are at the restaurant, you may want to try their ½ pound “Monster Burger.”
Here is a list of the items that's on the troop's wish list: arts and craft supplies, batteries (AA and AAA), beef jerky, blank cards, blank CD's, board games, bubble gum, coffee and creamer (the powdered kind), coffee cups, computer games, crossword puzzles, darts, DVD's, flashlights, goldfish, hard candy, letter writing materials, mac-n-cheese, pen lights, plastic models, poker chips and cards, popcorn, Pringles, puzzle books, salt and pepper, and spices.
