Mo. woman donates Twinkies to troops

CARL JUNCTION, MO (KFVS) - A military mom in Carl Junction is asking for help with "Operation Twinkies."

According to KOAM Trisha Monroe's son, Zach, was deployed to Afghanistan 2 months ago.

She sends him a package of goodies every 2 weeks and Twinkies are part of it.

Her son says that Twinkles are "like gold" for soldiers so she decided to do something to help them out.

Monroe started a campaign and is looking for donations to help send the cream-filled yellow treats overseas.

If you want to help send the snacks to our troops, you can take them to the United Methodist Church in Carl Junction on Wednesday and Sunday nights.
