Area community leaders are helping soldiers as part of a community service project.
The 2006 Leadership Bowling Green class decided to send care packages to soldiers who are serving overseas.
The class of 30 gathered health care items, canned goods and candy.
"I was just amazed when I came in here today to see the volume of goods that have been brought in by the different folks", said Ryan Finkbone, the class president.
The class will send the packages to around a dozen soldiers with ties to the Bowling Green and Warren County area. The soldiers will get around two packages apiece.
