♥ Hearts & Hugs ♥

Valentines for our troops

 

 Cards must be received by Friday, January 24, 2020


Every February, loved ones exchange flowers, candy and cards, but for troops serving overseas who are separated from the ones they love, Valentine's Day can be hard.  Hugs for Soldiers would like to connect hearts at home with hearts overseas by sending "HUGS" through Valentine cards to our deployed service members to let them know how much they are appreciated.

Due to privacy and security restrictions, we do not distribute names or addresses of service members to anyone for any reason.  

Please do not send us letters that are written to a specific individual.

 

Guidelines for Cards

 

♥ Send a card, handwritten letter, or note.  Envelopes are not required.  If individual envelopes are used, do not seal them for security reasons.

 

♥ Keep your cards to a size of 8 1/2" x 11" or under for ease in shipping and distribution.

 

♥ Do not use glitter or materials that easily break off during the two-week shipment.

 

♥ You can include your school, church or organization name, address and/or email contact on each card so recipients can write back if they have an opportunity.  Cards from children/students must include a first name only.   

 

♥ Photos of the sender, sender's family, church, or classroom participants can add a personal touch to your card.

 

♥ Keep your messages positive!  Start with a salutation, such as "Dear Hero" or "Dear Brave One." All cards will be screened.
