Operation Holiday Card - 6 easy steps to cheer deployed personnel

Operation Holiday Card is now underway!   Kelley is a long time volunteer with SOS America Inc.  She manages the list of deployed personnel requesting mail.  She has two names, from separate units, seeking mail for 200+ personnel in their unit.    

How can you help?

1.  Gather a group around the table - family, friends, scouts, sports teams, youth groups, etc.

2.  Sign boxed holiday cards .... or make your own from construction paper.  Add pictures!

3.  Insert a small treat, such as tea bags, hot chocolate, Slim Jims, etc., into card.   Place card into envelope but leave blank (each POC will write in soldiers' names).

4.  Place envelopes in larger container ... I recommend the Priority Mail large flat rate boxes - they are discounted for APO addresses.

5.  Contact me at for the mailing address of the unit seeking cards.

6.  Mail box by November Wednesday, November 27, to ensure delivery by Christmas.
