Local organization donates to troop support project
Recently the Alabama Conservation Enforcement Officers Association (ACEOA) made a donation to Strength for Soldiers, a non-profit organization that raises money for the devotional books and helps assist deployed chaplains with items they need.
The ACEOA is a non-profit organization founded by Alabama Conservation Enforcement Officers and concerned citizens whose main objective is Resource Protection through Education.
When they heard about Strength for Soldiers they quickly acted to see what they could do to help. When the ACEOA realized Audra Mickle, a Troy University student, was raising money for Strength for Soldiers they generously donated $500 dollars to the cause.
ACEOA’s Executive Director Rusty Morrow said, “It was an easy decision for us to make as an organization. It’s for a good cause and it’s something we believe in. We are even considering putting Strength for Soldiers in our annual budget.”
An article about Strength for Soldiers ran in the Advertiser in March and since that time, more than $3,000 has been donated to the project, Mickle said.
To make a donation, make checks out to Strength for Soldiers and mail to Strength for Soldiers,

Mickle said donations of any size are welcome and she will put labels inside the book covers letting the soldiers know where and who the books came from. The donations are also tax deductible, Mickle said.
