Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) -- What a service day in Grand Forks, the Youth Commission wrapped up its first Youth Can Support Our Troops Campaign.

Group members, along with folks from the Grand Forks Air Force Base and city leaders, boxed up more than 150 care packages for troops serving overseas.

Area schools collected the donations for the packages.

Youth commission members say they more than doubled their original goal of shipping 60 packages.

Margarita Consing, with the Grand Forks Youth Commission, says, "We really wanted to give back to those troops who are from the North Dakota area and really show them how much they mean to us."

Organizers say the Support Our Troops campaign will become an annual event.
