Operation Holiday Card is up and running again this year! This is a wonderful program that distributes Christmas, Hanukkah, and holiday cards with short personal messages to troops deployed overseas during the holiday season. This program was a huge success last year collecting over 16,000 cards.
I am asking people to write a note to an unknown service member inside your card, seal it, and send it to the address below. Cards can be for Christmas, Hanukkah (please write this on the back of your envelope), or general Season’s Greetings. Your words of support mean so much to these men and women. Remember each card you send is another service member touched.
This program works because individuals take this initiative to spread the word and collect cards with in their lives. Please pass the word about this project to everyone you know. Feel free to post it in your journals, other communities, promote it in your workplace, or your place of worship. One woman from my church last year collected 200 cards in her workplace. How many cards can you collect? Cards can be sent to:
Operation Holiday Card
226 Albany Ave
Shreveport, LA 71105
This year’s deadline will be Dec. 3, all cards must be received in Louisiana by that time. The cards will need plenty of time to get overseas. I thank you for your support of this wonderful project. There is so much support for our troops as they spend the holidays away from their families.
