Representative Hunt Announces Christmas and Holiday Card Drive for Military Service Members
SANDWICH – State Representative Randy Hunt (R-Sandwich) announced that he will be collecting Christmas and Holiday cards for our military troops serving overseas. Working in conjunction with Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops, Representative Hunt’s office will act as a collection point and forward the cards directly to our military service members.
Everyone is encouraged to drop off unsealed Christmas and Holiday cards addressed to “American Service Member” at 297 Quaker Meeting House Road in East Sandwich (02537). There is a 24-hour drop box located there and the office will be open from 10am to 3pm today and Thursday, as well as this coming Monday and Tuesday.
The last day for the collection is Friday, November 25th. Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops will be packing boxes for shipment at the Trowbridge Inn & Tavern on Trowbridge Road in Bourne on Saturday, November 26th from 9am to 6pm. Volunteers to assist with the packing effort are needed.
If you know a service member who would like to receive a care package, Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops is still collecting names of recipients at email@example.com.
Representative Hunt said, “I believe it is important to express our gratitude for the sacrifices our armed forces make to protect our country and I am privileged to be able to help Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops with their annual Christmas and Holiday Card Drive. We tend to forget that there are many military men and women continuing to serve in foreign countries and in dangerous situations.”
