Lip Balm to Troops Overseas

Rockwell, N.C. - A local man is helping a Rockwell company get thousands of dollars in lip balm to the troops in Iraq. Earilier this week, Rodney Cress, a Vietnam veteran, was contacted by FillTech USA, which asked him if he could help get the lip balm overseas. Cress had organized a book drive for the troops earlier this year. Cress said he had no idea he would be picking up 27,000 tubes. He now has 62 boxes of lip balm in his garage. FillTech USA employees said the business wanted to donate the lip balm to the troops after they found out it was one of the most sought-after items there. They had trouble finding out how to get it to the troops, so they contacted Cress. FillTech USA makes its own lip balm and fills containers for some national brands. Due to the retail price of the balm, the company made a minimum donation of $27,000.
