I know it is still six months before the winter holidays and New Year’s. But I wanted to tell you this news.
During the months of July, August, September, Operation Santa Claus is in full swing packaging up gift boxes to ship to soldiers, sailors, and air crew who are deployed during the winter holiday season.
Canadians can go online, create a card (for free!) and have it sent overseas to deployed troops.
Help spread a little holiday cheer to the men and women who have to be away from their families during such a special time. It is a huge morale boost for Armed Forces members to know that the work they do at home and abroad is appreciated by all Canadians.
The deadline for creating a card is 3 August so be sure to make one (or many) today!
