CHRISTMAS CARDS FOR DEPLOYED MILITARY MEMBERS

CHRISTMAS CARDS FOR DEPLOYED MILITARY MEMBERS

This is the 10th year of participation brightening our deployed military members’ holidays. With past efforts of parishioners and Boy/Girl Scout troops, we’ve sent over 10,500 cards! Writing a note in a card is a meaningful way for Americans to show support for our Military. It only takes a few minutes of your day but will bring lasting joy to the recipients. Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Start your letter with “Dear Hero” or “Dear Service
    Member” (we’ve been asked to avoid using “Dear
    Soldier” as the cards go to all military branches)
    and then express your thanks for their selfless
    service.
  • Avoid politics completely and religion in excess;
    however, saying you pray for them is wonderful.
    Remember, our soldiers are of many faiths.
    Share a little bit about yourself including talking
    about life back home, including sports, weather,
    pets, family, hobbies, music and movies.
  • (Optional) Adults: Include your contact information
    (mail or email, no phone numbers) so the recipient
    may reply. Children: FIRST NAME ONLY and
    NO addresses please.
  • You may use store-bought Christmas or Season’s
    Greeting cards or make your own. Cards should
    be no larger than 8.5” x 11”.  (Lisa Schoenberger has cards
    if you don’t want to purchase—just let her know
    how many you’d like and she can get them to you.)
  • Stickers are welcome but please NO glitter or puffy
    stickers. Glitter contaminates the entire package!
    DO NOT seal envelopes (all cards are read before
    shipment). No postage is necessary.

A collection box for completed cards will be available in the OLSH Foyer AND Main Entrance at SsPP from October 20-November 18. I’m accepting only Christmas/Holiday cards. DO NOT send in other cards (i.e. Birthday, all-occasion, Get Well, etc.). If you have any questions, please contact me at 513/535-9841 or email Lisa.Schoenberger@bizcinci.rr.com.
