Representative Randy Hunt (R-Sandwich) announced that his office at 297 Quaker Meeting House Road in East Sandwich will collect Christmas and holiday cards for overseas troops now through Friday, November 16.
All are encouraged to drop off unsealed Christmas and holiday cards addressed to "American Service Member". There is a 24-hour drop box at Rep. Hunt's office and the office is open and staffed weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The cards will be given to Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops to include in boxes destined for the troops. Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops will be packing boxes at the Trowbridge Inn & Tavern on Trowbridge Road in Bourne from 10 a.m. to 4pm on Saturday, November 17 and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, November 18. This year marks the 5th year for the organization. Volunteers are still needed to pack the boxes. The boxes will contain snacks, personal items and other items of use for the troops. This year, 1,500 boxes will be packed and sent to active troops.
"I believe it is important to express our gratitude for the sacrifices our armed forces make to protect our country and I am privileged to be able to help Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops with their annual Christmas and Holiday Card Drive," said Rep. Hunt.
