Cards for Troops By Emilio Justo on November 11, 2021

Collecting Christmas Cards for Troops Overseas!

As many of you know, today - Veteran's Day - is my birthday.

It's a day that every child pays a great deal of attention to, so it is no surprise that I have always held a special tribute in my heart for our Veterans, and our Veterans' families.

This year to celebrate, we have begun our annual Cards for the Troops campaign in which we accept Christmas or other holiday season cards with messages of gratitude and holiday spirit, to deliver to troops serving overseas through the efforts of local Valley Classic Rock Station KSLX (100.7 FM) as part of their annual "10,000 For The Troops."

It's a popular campaign in which the station collects Christmas cards and sends them to troops serving far away from home during the holiday season. 

We were thrilled with the hundreds of Christmas cards we received each year since beginning this campaign, showcasing just how much gratitude our community has for those who will be spending the holiday season heroically protecting our safety and freedoms.

Please drop of Christmas cards with your personal messages written to the troops at any of our offices during work hours by Friday, Dec. 3, so we can get them to the radio station and overseas for the holiday.  We need as many cards with messages as we can get to give the troops the holiday spirit they deserve!

We also have blank cards at our offices that you are welcome to sign and submit for us to send overseas!  It is a great way to make a visit with us even more beautiful and meaningful.

Cards need no postage or stamps  - the radio station will be sending cards in bulk, so save your stamps!   Envelopes are also not required.  You can donate as many cards as you like.  Some get together as a family or group of friends to fill out cards as part of a new holiday tradition!  You are welcome to bring in home made cards as well!
