Operation Write Home is celebrating their  birthday in this month and has invited us to join their party.  It is very easy to help out so please read on:
Several Teams are helping them with their cause this month by hosting special challenges for different events we have been picked to handle holidays!  So to join our challenge we ask that you use a holiday theme.

Please include a packing slip inside your box or envelope, and mail them to any of their shippers listed on the Mailroom page. In your package, you can also include notes written to a deployed service member.

Please consider entering a card for Operation Write Home into Jo-Ann’s Craft for a Cause Contest. You can win $1500, and OWH could win $50,000! How many boxes would that ship! Please see their site. for detailed rules and regulations.
