The Summer UND Women’s Study class is accepting donations for 24 service women serving in Afghanistan. The class is gathering donations which they call "Kreature Komfort Kare Kits." The kits will include "feel-good" items such as manicure and pedicure kits, hard candy, stationery/cards, anything really uniquely North Dakota or UND, special coffee (not the big containers of Maxwell House), Crystal Light packets. Many of the deployed soldiers are alumni or current students at UND. Their ages range from 21 to 45. A donation box is in the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership.
