To the Editor:
It is with a great deal of gratitude that St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church recognizes those in the community who contributed to a very successful effort to send Valentine’s Day cheer to American servicemen and women on duty in sensitive areas around the globe. Donations of snacks, toiletries and personal items filled some 100 USPS Priority Mail boxes destined for those serving in Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Djibouti. The boxes carried the good wishes of St. Andrew’s along with valentine cards made by students at The Island School.
The project is part of St. Andrew’s commitment to outreach in keeping with our biblical admonition to serve those in need in our area and around the world. We could not have completed the soldiers’ boxes project without those in the community whose generous hearts and willing hands made it possible. Thank you one and all!
