Support group to greet troops

Members of the 216th Engineer Battalion Family Support Group will accept donations at Westfield Shoppingtown Franklin Park from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. today.

The group, which provides support for families of soldiers as well as communications between deployed soldiers and their families, is seeking items to welcome home the 130 members of the 216th Engineer Battalion. They were deployed Jan. 4, 2004, and will return from Iraq in mid-February. Suggested items include restaurant gift certificates, movie passes and rentals, bowling passes, and tickets to sporting or other events as well as monetary donations.
