Thank you for your interest in sending Cards and Letters to our deployed Soldiers overseas.

There are many ways to show your support for our Country and our Troops, but the most personal and effective way is by sending a card or letter to a Soldier.  This is a very easy thing to do to bless our troops, especially when very few of us ever get to thank our Soldiers personally.  Saying "THANK YOU" for their sacrifices so others can be free is very important!  It only takes 5 minutes out of your day to write a letter, but it will bring joy to our troops that will last a lifetime.​

  • All letters and cards will be screened by HUGS FOR SOLDIERS prior to being placed in our care packages.  When sending multiple cards to us, please send the card only - no envelopes, keep the envelopes for your personal use.  

  • Multiple cards and letters should be mailed in the same envelope or box to us.

  • Keep your message upbeat and positive. Express thanks for their service, dedication, sacrifice, and/or time away from home. Our troops need to be encouraged.

  • Sample Salutations:  Dear Hero, Dear Brave One, Dear Service Member, Dear Warrior.  ​

  • You may include an email address so recipients can choose to reply.  STUDENTS:  Use first name only. TEACHERS/LEADERS:  you  may use your name and contact information.  (Recipients may or may not write back; please do not be disappointed if you do not receive a response.)

  • Be creative. Draw pictures and talk about you.  Keep cards and letters to a size of 8 1/2" x 11" or under for ease in shipping and distribution.  You can use colorful construction paper within the paper size limit.  

  • DO NOT USE GLITTER OR CONFETTI or any other product that could come loose when we open the box or envelope in which you are mailing us your cards.  

Mail your cards and letters to:


Duluth First United Methodist Church

3208 Duluth Hwy. 120
