UPSTATE – 2017 marks the seventh year that America’s Adopt A Soldier will reach out to America to ask for cards of thanks to share with our nation’s service members who are deployed and veterans who are in state veterans homes and hospitals.
“In 2016, over 120,000 care letters, were shared,” said Mary Keeser, founder of America’s Adopt A Soldier. “This year, the goal is to reach over 300,000, which would allow us to send at least four letters to every veteran in a veterans home or veterans hospital as well as to our deployed service members.”
Keeser added anyone — anywhere — can send a card.
“The cards and letters we receive are drawn or written by a diverse group of individuals, from 3-years-old to the over 100-years- old,” she said. “From kitchen tables to classrooms, to businesses, to college dorms to faith-based establishments, the pens, pencils, crayons and pieces of paper used to create messages of hope, appreciation, unity and support will have a positive impact. The letters of care are truly the caring pulse of America towards our service men and women.”
To participate in the 2017 National Care Letter Campaign, mail your personal written and designed letter or greeting card to America’s Adopt A Soldier, 5400 Shawnee Road. Suite 300, Alexandria, VA. 22312.
