This is Susan Troxel, Vice President of Operations with From Our Hearts. I am corresponding on the blog in an effort to catch up on what is going on. Martie has had surgery of her rotator cuff (shoulder) and is recuperating per doctor’s orders. This event in her life has her computer prohibitive, so this is my attempt to let you know that FOH is still active and receiving donations and sending out boxes to the soldiers. We currently have approximately 18 contacts. This coming week we will be packing and sending off boxes that contain the Easter, spring and general cards.
In 2013 FOH mailed out 252 boxes totaling 70, 578 cards. Since our inception, FOH has mailed out 397,673 cards as of December 31, 2013. Hooray! This would not have been possible without everyone’s contributions of cards, supplies, monies for postage, and time and work put in from all volunteers. Everyone give yourself a pat on the back and a big hug.
NEWS ALERT: From Our Hearts has received a spectacular, king-size, custom handmade quilt for us to raffle as a fundraiser to pay for postage. Details to follow soon.
Again, thanks to everyone for your continued support to From Our Hearts.
