Join KREM 2 News on Friday for a special event in downtown Spokane, as we thank our active and veteran service members.

Come down to Riverpark Square all day on Friday, Nov. 9. Bring a donation and make a card to send to troops serving overseas. There will even be a special selfie station so you can post your good wishes to our service members on social media!

Then, on Friday at 6:30 p.m., watch KREM's Salute 2 Service special on TV.

You can also drop off donations through Nov. 21 at any Washington Trust Bank location. KREM will send packages filled with "treats" to let those serving overseas with Fairchild AFB know that we are thinking of them here at home!

Below is the top 10 list of items requested from our troops:

  • Cliff bars
  • Protein bars
  • Nuts/sunflower seeds
  • Hot sauce (single serving packets)
  • Hygiene wipes
  • Via packs (instant coffee)
  • Beef Jerky/beef strips
  • Stationary supplies
  • Small handheld games/card games
  • Gum/hard candy

Share your wishes for the troops by posting on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with #Treats2Troops and tagging @TeamFairchild @krem2.
