TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — With more soldiers looking at deploying, one man in the Big Bend is showing love and support for the men and women fighting overseas.

Timothy Mosley and his foundation "The Less Fortunate Still Matter" are collecting items to send care packages to soldiers overseas in Iran and Iraq.

Mosley has sent smaller care packages in the past to soldiers to show them support. These boxes include food, undergarments, and hygiene products, along with handwritten notes and words of encouragement.

Mosley says it'll take about a month for the boxes to make it to the soldiers due to current restrictions and hot zones with mail delivery.

He says this is a simple way for him to show his gratitude and appreciation.

"We sit at our house at night in the comfort of our home not having to worry about missiles dropping over our heads or grenades going off," said Mosley. "Just having a peace of mind and thinking about those guys is really just above and beyond our grace and our mercy of staying here while they're fighting and putting their lives on the line."

Mosley is also still collecting donations. You can write a card or drop off any items to his foundation. To donate, call 850.509.0251or visit https://www.thelessfortunatestillmatter.org/.
