Below is the complete list of items they are collecting:

- Underwear

- Socks
- Sunglasses
- Lip Balm
- Foot Powder
- Flip Flops

“Buy One, Send One” on Old Navy’s famous Flag Tees- for every Old Navy Flag Tee purchased in-store between July 1 and July 5, Old Navy will send one to our troops overseas, up to 500,000.

- Customers who participate by making a donation during the collection will receive a 10% discount off their entire purchase in-store that day.

- An under $10 troop essentials section will be available in the front of every store in hopes to encourage customers to purchase and donate.
