DETROIT -- The Red Wings have joined forces with the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 38 and the Blue Star Mothers of America in creating care packages for U.S. troops in Iraq.


On Saturday, the eve of the Western Conference finals opener at Joe Louis Arena, the Wings' players autograph Red Wings lunchboxes, which will be filled with goods by the Blue Star Mothers, an organization of mothers who now have, or have had, children honorably serving in the military.

The cost of shipping the care packages is being picked up by the Local 38 stagehands who work out of Joe Louis Arena.
