Time to Think of Valentines!

Friend Kat has started her annual card drive for the troops for Valentine's Day.


Valentine’s Day Card Drive for Troops

Let's show our troops we love and support them!! Let’s help them chase away those after-
Christmas blues!! We are now collecting Valentine's cards to send to our troops stationed in Iraq
and Afghanistan. If you wish to participate, please send light-hearted, silly, cheerful cards to this address:

Mrs. Kat Orr
Operation Valentine
P.O. Box 1660
Loganville, GA 30052

Please make sure to leave the envelopes unsealed – every card is read before it is shipped, to
ensure appropriate content.

I am also collecting “Hershey’s Kisses” and “Hershey’s Hugs” candy, and any other silly
Valentine’s candy you’d like to send – lollipops, candy hearts, etc.

The cards can be handmade or store-bought... for that matter, they don't even have to be cards; a hand -written letter is just as wonderful! Let's all band together and overwhelm our heroes with support! This is a great project for Scout troops, churches, or other organizations to get involved with!
