Operation Write Home changes the lives of our Service Men and Women in combat. The lovingly made, beautifully crafted greeting cards made by volunteers come into the hands of the soldiers who want something special to write home on. The "Heros" still want to wish their Mothers a Happy Mother's Day and their children a Happy Birthday. They deserve a special card that will brighten the day of their loved ones. They normally have little to nothing to select in the way of greeting cards to send home so Operation Write Home is a Godsend. Their families are so grateful for the beautiful cards that are hand selected by their "Heros". The organization continually strives to improve the quality of the greeting cards sent by the volunteers by way of instructional videos and weekly vlogs. Volunteers also send letters of gratitude to ensure our Heros know they are thought of and appreciated. Volunteers send money for shipping. Volunteers "triage" cards that fall apart before reaching their destination and lovingly put them together again. Operation Write Home receives fund for envelopes to use on cards of volunteers who cannot afford to supply envelopes with their donated cards. Volunteers match up cards with envelopes when needed before shipping them overseas. The President of the company, Sandy Allnock is generous, committed and dedicated to providing the highest quality greeting cards for our Heros. Our Heros only deserve the best.
