DNCC sending care packages to NC troops

The folks planning next year's Democratic National Convention in Charlotte will be assembling 500 care packages Wednesday for N.C. troops serving overseas.

Each package will contain 25 items, said DNCC spokeswoman Joanne Peters.

Among the goodies: candy, gum, sunblock, memorabilia from Carolina sports teams, coffee, socks, soap, phone cards, toiletries, assorted food snacks -- and letters written by students at Allenbrook Elementary School.

Local news media have been invited to take pictures and film footage Wednesday afternoon of the DNCC staff's Care Assembly Line at Charlotte's Time Warner Cable Arena. That's also where Democratic delegates from around the country will gather next September to re-nominate President Barack Obama.

Besides planning for that big show, DNCC CEO Steve Kerrigan has also pledged to reach out to the Charlotte and greater Carolinas communities.
