♥ Hearts & Hugs ♥

Valentines for our troops

 

 Cards must be received by Wednesday, January 26, 2022


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.  Please send the card only - no envelopes.  

 

♥ 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.

♥ 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.

The cost of mailing boxes of cards overseas is expensive.  We are asking anyone who would like to send in more than 25 cards, help us spread the love by making a tax-deductible donation by clicking the Donate link or mailing a check with your cards you are sending.  Checks must be made payable to HFS/Duluth FUMC.

  

 

 

Bundle cards and send in a single large envelope or box containing all of the Valentines to:
