Operation Santa for the Hospitals is putting together Christmas stockings with gift cards and treats and cards to deliver to the OEF/OIF veterans at Bethesda, Walter Reed, Balboa Naval Hospital and Brooke Army Medical Center.
And, they need our help!!!! There are two ways to help -
Money - They can use our donations to purchase stocking stuffers and pay for postage. To donate, you can click this Pay Pal link for Marine Corps Family Foundation - a 501(c)(3) - so your donations are tax deductible - be sure and designate "For the Hospitals" in the notes box or, you can tuck a check into the envelope of Christmas cards!
Christmas Cards - They wish to put lots of Christmas Cards in the stockings! So, if you can sit down and write a joyful Christmas card (or a box or two!) and send them to:
Operation Santa - c/o Marine Moms-Bethesda - P O Box 22 - Cordova MD 21625
Please note: The cards must be glitter and coating free - these come off and can cause secondary infections in the wounds. Don't seal the envelopes - they are screened. Please consider tucking a check in (Marine Corps Family Foundation - Hospitals) to help with the project! They should be postmarked by December 3.
Contact Carrie at firstname.lastname@example.org for any one interested in supporting the efforts or for more information about the stockings.
Please help Carrie and Jane make our wounded troops Christmas a little brighter!
