Operation: Love From Home


During this holiday season, let's show our troops we love and support them!!! From September 30 to November 30, I will be collecting holiday cards for troops stationed in high-combat areas of Iraq and Afghanistan. Being away from home and living in harsh conditions during the holiday season is especially difficult ! They need to know we have not forgotten them!!! Mail from home helps to keep our troop's morale strong, making a very real difference in their lives.

Send your signed, unsealed holiday cards to:

Mrs. Kathy Orr
P O Box 1660
Loganville GA 30052

The cards can be handmade or store-bought... for that matter, they don't even have to be cards; a hand-written or typed letter is just as wonderful! This is a great opportunity to get your Scout troop, school, church and other civic organizations involved in doing something to show support for our troops.

If you wish to send an email greeting (which will be printed off and mailed along with the holiday cards), please send an email to: Operation Love From Home

To follow the progress of the cards see the website


This is a wonderful opportunity to involve yourself in some support of our deployed military men and women. It doesn't take long and it doesn't cost much and Christmas cards are already available in all of the stores! Or, you can email a greeting, which Kat will print out and send.

If you have ever spent a Christmas alone or away from home, you can imagine how important it is for these young men and women to hear from us.

Thank you!!!
