Samaria (USA): Operation Christmas Cards for Soldiers Christmas is a hard time for those soldiers who are away from their homes, family, and friends. One of the most appreciated gifts a soldier receives is cards and letters from the men, women, & children that they are fighting to protect. Join your sister churches in remembering our men and women overseas this Christmas season.
** Please help protect our troops by sending cards with NO GLITTER **
Write an encouraging note and Bible verse in a Christmas card. You can send one or one million!
Individual cards should be addressed to “any Service Member” and can be signed each by their sender. Hand-made cards do not need an envelope. Otherwise, cards should have an envelope that they are sealed in.
Please identify if a card is specifically for a male or female.
Please let the DBA know how many cards you and/or your church would like to pledge.
Drop off at the DBA Office no later than 2:30 p.m. on October 18th.
Last year we collected 1779 Christmas Cards for Troops Overseas! Our goal this year is to collect 2000!
