On behalf of the RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) and Care Connection for Aging Services, we would like to cordially invite you to participate in our support of MLK National Day of Service; a part of United We Serve, the President's national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems. As a way to pay tribute, RSVP's community initiative will be sending LETTERS to currently Deployed Service Members through Operation Gratitude.
RSVP is asking for your assistance in supporting our American Armed Forces. Writing a letter is a meaningful way for Americans to show their support for our Military.
As MLK day is January 20, 2014, this community initiative begins now and will end January 31st. Letters, artwork and/or cards can be sent or dropped off at the RSVP office, 320 N Main, Wheatland, MO 65779. RSVP will collect, package and send to Operation Gratitude.
--Sample Salutations: Dear Hero, Dear Brave One
--Share a little about yourself: Family, Hobbies, Work, Pets
--Talk about life back home: Sports, Weather, Music, and Movies
--Adults: Include your contact information (mail or email) so the letter/package recipient can reply. Children: FIRST NAMES ONLY with parent mail/email
--No stamps or envelopes needed
--Hand written letters or cards are most appreciated
If you do not receive a reply from a Service Member, do not be discouraged. Remember: Our troops are busy!
OUR GOAL IS TO INCLUDE SEVERAL LETTERS AND CARDS IN OUR CARE PACKAGE AND TELL OUR TROOPS "WE CARE!"
We would be honored to include you in our MLK Day of Service: "Write a Letter" community initiative. For more information please contact RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org or 417-282-7787.
