If you’re looking to target what the biggest needs are for Operation Write Home, you’ve come to the right place! We’ll update this post from time to time – rather than on the Mailroom Monday posts. We also have a link to this post on our homepage, so you can always find it quickly! You can also click on the “Needs” category off to the right.
Note: We accept any themes your creativity produces – so if you’re not in the “zone” to meet the requests on this post, please don’t hold back on what you have to offer for our heroes!
IMPORTANT DEADLINE NOTE:
OUR OCT 30th DEADLINE HAS PASSED FOR CHRISTMAS CARDS! You can send them, but we’ll be holding them for next year; if you have storage space, please feel free to send them next fall instead.
Valentines are due Jan 7, but sooner is always better so we can get some boxes packed ahead of the deadline.
Kris:After packing up 16 boxes in the past two days, I’m in serious need of Thank You, Thinking of you/Miss you, love and Valentines. Also need Any Hero notes.
Sandy: I’m starting to worry about the heroes on our waiting list for over a month now! I still have tons of heroes waiting for their next boxes….can’t wait til the holidays are over so we can get back to getting boxes out. My shelves are nearly empty, I can use everything – birthday especially!
Dixie: My needs are for Miss You, Thank You, Thinking of you, and general cards.
