U.S. Rep. John Barrow (D-Savannah) is asking residents of Georgia’s 12th District to participate in his “Holiday Cards for Our Troops” program.
Throughout this week, Rep. Barrow will collect holiday cards for soldiers who are recovering from battle and stationed away from their families during this holiday season. He will then deliver the cards to soldiers at the Augusta VA Medical Center in Augusta.
“For the men and women who serve our country in uniform, the holiday season can be a difficult time of the year, especially if they’re recovering from battle injuries in places that are far from home,” Barrow said. “Thoughtful words of encouragement and support from the great folks in the 12th District can do a lot to boost the morale of these brave men and women.”
Barrow asks constituents to make or purchase a holiday card, write a message of thanks to a service member, and then send or bring the card, unaddressed and with an unsealed envelope, to one of his district offices in Augusta or Savannah by Dec. 19.
The Congressman and his staff will deliver them to service members on behalf of the people of the 12th District of Georgia.
