Success!!! We have reached our goal of sending 2 boxes of Christmas/holiday cards to each of our contacts - and some even received 3! Our shipments have totaled over 380,000 cards to date - and all thanks go to each and every one of our contributors!
And as we are celebrating our success, we are asking that no more of these types of cards arrive - we are now focusing on Valentines. Only 2 full boxes are sitting on the shelf at the office, not nearly enough for the 20+ contacts we currently serve.
Our ship date for Valentines is Jan 2 and we have one more request. We would like to have donations of Valentines arrive in Jefferson City prior to Christmas. This will give the FOH staff time to get them boxed up and ready to go before the rush of the holidays and lots of out of town travel. Thank you!
Just in to FOH is the following email from one of the chapel team members at one of the locations that receives our cards:
Dear From Our Hearts volunteers:
THANK YOU so much! We are very humbled by talents, patience & dedication in making & sending cards to us. I just want to let you know that we received all the boxes you sent to our APO and would like to ask, if that's ok, for more "Thank You" and "Valentine's Day" cards.
Thank you again,Regina S
(So please add "thank you" cards to your list!) We are so very grateful for all the support we receive and for the support we are able to give to all our troops. We could not do it without your help.
