From WUSTL with love

Judy Musick (left), administrative manager in the Department of Biology in Arts & Sciences, and Judith Tigah, a WUSTL sophomore, examine items donated by the campus community for care packages to U.S. troops serving in Iraq. In February, the WUSTL military care package group — organized by Jill Edwards, project manager in diversity and administration — mailed 10 boxes weighing a total of 178 pounds to Iraq. Inside were snacks, toiletries, batteries and more than 700 home-baked brownies and cookies.

One of the soldiers receiving packages is Major Dave Goodwin, a WUSTL police officer currently serving in Iraq. Since March 2004, the University community has mailed roughly 5,370 pounds of snacks, baked goods, toiletries and sporting goods to troops overseas. The next mailing will be in late March.
