Warrior Pantry Providing ComfortAirman 1st Class Robert Hicks
CAMP MIKE SPANN, Afghanistan – Nearly three years ago, contributions from several United States based church and veteran organizations, schools, and private companies made it possible for Camp Mike Spann to open a stockroom for donations sent to deployed troops.
The Warrior Pantry, sometimes known as the “thrift store”, allows U.S and coalition forces, along with contractors, to pick up some of the essentials from personal hygiene items to snacks, magazines, and gift cards.
“Everything in the Warrior Pantry is free,” said Chaplain (Maj.) Dale Code, chaplain for the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division. “We receive all our items for free from charitable organizations and individuals, so we believe in giving them to the service members for free.”
Currently there are more than 12 service members from different military branches that volunteer their time to work at the Warrior Pantry on a daily basis.
“I enjoy volunteering,” said Sgt. Maj. Dennis Sullivan, from the Minnesota Army National Guard. “I get to talk to everyone that comes in, and it’s always a good feeling to help.”
According to one of the Soldiers volunteering there, the pantry consist of many items, but the items that seem to go the fastest are deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap and shampoo.
