A TASTE of home is on its way to Australian troops serving overseas.

Fern and Rob Messenger were thrilled the community once again got behind Operation Christmas Cheer.

More than 100 2kg boxes full of Christmas goodies will be sent to defence force members serving in Afghanistan, Solomon Islands and East Timor.

"I want them to know that all those who donated are thinking of them, as well as their family and loved ones," she said.

She would like to thank: Marlene, Kattina and colleagues from Mareeba; Rosedale and Bundaberg Army Cadets; Burnett Heads Lighthouse social group; Vivienne and Betty, Cathy Jenkins and Gail Howard; Jenny and colleagues from Bundaberg Breast Screen; Pam from Gin Gin QCWA; Heather and Jim from Woodgate; Lyn Kelman and QCWA Burnett Div Maryborough; Gwen Curtis and Bargara QCWA; Diane Styles and Childers Dollars & Sense; Childers Woolworths, Childers IGA; Peter Anderson & Audrey Messenger; Bruno and Marilyn Kwas from Townsville; North Bundaberg Post Office; and Heather and Ron Galley, McColms Real Estate.
