If you will have a deployed military family member or friend during the holiday season and would like to have them receive cards please email their name and overseas address (will not be shared), by October 31st, 2011, to opChristmascards@gmail.com . We will be more than happy to send a box of love and holiday cheer....with enough to share with others.... and is open to any branch of the military! This is a FREE program and we know that our  deployed service members LOVE getting greetings from home!!Thank you!   PS: You do NOT have to donate cards to participate!!

Renee...

Do you take donations and do you also send care packages too?

Please let me know, our Lionettes Club might be willing to donate cards and items that are needed by our military men and woman.

Thank you!

Renee...

I did get on the website and printed it off for my Lionettes meeting on Nov. 22nd.  I did not see what can be sent in the care packages for the soldiers?  We might be too late for the Christmas cards but we still could send a care package.  So, if there is a list that I could get, that would be great!
Thanks!

Hi Susan~ We just send Christmas cards. The cut off date for packages getting to a deployed soldier in time for Christmas is November 14th.  Unfortunately all addresses that we get can not be shared with the public.  If you know of a deployed soldier that is in need of some love and cheer from home by all means PM his/her address to me by Nov. 10th and we will send a box of cards with enough to share with others!!
Thank you for caring!

Thanks for the reminder. Our church did it last year and I am sure our men and women in the armed forces need to know that they are in our thoughts and prayers especially at the time when we are enjoying family and friends because they are out there protecting our freedoms. We pray for them every day.

Renee...

I think this is such a great program!   Thank you Renee for all that you do...God Bless!

I have another question for you, do you send care packages year around or just for Christmas?  Our Lionettes Club would donate items for these care packages too.
