The Hugs Project has had a working relationship with Cell Phones for Soldiers for several years now. Our nationwide members recycle phones with them and they in turn provide phone cards for the troops we send care packages. This year we sent out almost 4,000 Christmas care packages and more than 3,000 boxes throughout the rest of the year. Each Christmas box had a phone card so that the young service member could call home and wish someone he/she loves a Merry Christmas. This was wonderful for our troops and only possible because of the caring of the CPFS organization. Our troops receive a LOT of things in the boxes we send out but I think none is as well received as the chance to call someone back home and for that we (and they) say thank you to Cell Phones for Soldiers from the bottom of our hearts. I just wish it was possible to give more than 5 stars because they've earned it.
