03/03/2020- A local lawmaker is taking part in an effort by the entire Wisconsin State Assembly to send a little bit of home to troops from the Badger State stationed overseas. Representative John Nygren of Marinette is supporting Operation We Love Our Troops and will be collecting donated care package items through the end of the week to be shipped to deployed service members from Wisconsin. Local donation drop boxes are located at the Marinette City Hall and Peshtigo Public Library. Suggested donation items include non-perishable food, powder drink mix, coffee or K-cups, magazines, travel-size hygiene products, and of course, Packers, Brewers, Bucks, or Badgers gear. Currently, there are over 200 service members from Wisconsin deployed overseas.
