Not Tennessee...this Nashville is in North Carolina and has less than 5000 residents.
The donations ranged from a small bags of groceries to boxes of water and writing supplies to a $100 bill and other cash offerings.

Regardless of the contribution's size, Monica Worsham said, all of the items were appreciated.

Worsham and a small group of volunteers collected donations on Saturday at the N.C. National Guard armory in Nashville to provide care packages to the Nashville-based infantry unit serving a yearlong mission in Iraq.

"The people who brought stuff out really meant a lot to us," said Worsham, the unit's Family Support Group coordinator. "The quantity they brought was overwhelming.

"We even had one person stop and say, ‘What do you need?’ They went shopping and came back with a trunk-load."
