Thousands of cards are needed throughout the year to fill our care packages. We include cards from people living all over the USA from all 50 states! From ages 2 to 102, thankful Americans are making cards and writing notes of encouragement for our troops.
We want to put at least 10 personalized cards and letters in each box. Your messages are the most important part of the package! If we send out 5,000 care packages, this means we need a minimum of 50,000 cards. Recruit friends and family to make cards and write letters.
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Buy a box of greeting cards, write a short note of encouragement to our troops and send them to us to be included in our packages.
Fold a piece of paper in half and make your own card. We would love for schools, churches, and clubs to have their children spend a few minutes making cards.
Write personal letters that can be included in the packages. “Dear Friend” is a great way to start your letter to a soldier!
Do not put a date on them because they will be sent all during the year.
We do not need the envelopes, only the cards.
We can only accept Christmas cards during October, November and December. During the other months, please use non-holiday or patriotic themed cards.
If you live in the Central Kentucky area, you can drop the cards off at our office. If you live in other areas of the country, please mail cards to the following address:
Military Missions Inc., 3650 Boston Rd., Suite 138, Lexington, KY 40514.
