As the year comes to a close, most of us can look forward to spending time with our loved ones during the holidays and see this time as one of joy and togetherness. But for many soldiers deployed overseas, this time of year brings a reminder of their sacrifice for all of our benefit: that they will not be able to spend the holidays with their families.
Gabe and Shaun are asking everyone who is able, to join them in partnering with United Soldiers and Sailors of America (USASOA) in project “Operation Christmas Cards For Our Troops”.
We purchased hundreds of blank holiday cards which we started to distribute to volunteers this week and are asking everyone to write kind, thoughtful messages to our troops stationed abroad.
We’re collecting completed cards from volunteers and will mail them a week ahead of USASOA’s December 1 deadline. We’re covering all shipping costs to the USASOA and they will ensure that every card gets to an American Serviceman or woman serving overseas during the holidays.
For more information on USASOA’s Operation Christmas Cards For Our Troops, please visit their website here. And if you would like to help us add handwritten messages to all of our cards, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us on our Facebook page, “Little Egg Harbor United”, here.
