Letter Writing:  
Letters from home are priceless additions to our Care Packages. We receive many thank you emails from the troops stating that the letters are the most cherished item in their package.  We encourage everyone to write a few letters during the event and to include their email address.  I am sure that they would love to hear how much their letters mean to the recipient! 

Here is the link to Letters of Gratitude that will help guide you through the process.  The “Letters” video at the bottom of the page is also great.

You can use colored pencils, markers, pens, Thank You cards, Branded Stationary, lined paper or plain white printing paper.  It is not about the stationary, it is all about the message that is written, that means so much! 

NO need to include envelopes, as every letter goes through a screening process, once they are received.
