CLEVELAND, TN (WRCB)- Tunes 4 the Troops, founded in 2005, by then 14-year old, Kaylee Marie Radzyminski has found a new home at Tennessee Tech University. And this weekend, Kaylee will visit her hometown of Cleveland for a major "care package" shipment to aid U.S. military personnel.

When Kaylee Marie Radzyminski left to go to Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville, Tennessee, as an Army ROTC Cadet, (engineering major) last fall, she thought it would be the end of her program of supporting military personnel with donated CD's and DVD's.

But TTU has come through in a big way, with administrators, teachers and students all supporting the effort.

The first joint effort will be a packing party to send over 40,000 new and used CD's and DVD's along with MP3 players and I-Pods to war zones, including Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan, and the Horn of Africa.

The event will take place at Cleveland High School on Saturday June 19th from 8 a.m. until all the boxes are shipped out at the Cleveland Post Office. 

More than 200 boxes are expected to be sent out by Kaylee, Tennessee Tech ,Lee University, Cleveland Community College, Rotary Club members, Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Recruiters along with any others who choose to participate. Donations of money as well as CD's and DVD's will be accepted on Saturday.

This tremendous effort will bring the total sent items to almost 700,000 since 2005, with an estimated value of well over $12 million dollars.
