Art from the Heart!


We love to send a big long distance hug showing our support to our troops for Valentine’s Day and to make it extra special, each year we enlist an enthusiastic army of young artists and budding writers to create extra special one-of-a-kind Valentine’s Day cards to include in our packages.

Schools, church and youth groups both near and far delivered with bright  and cheery home-made Valentine’s Day Cards full of the kind of love only a child can convey to be included in our troop support packages.

Jean Klark, once again coordinated the efforts of a variety of youth groups and families for Dexter United Methodist Church in Dexter, Michigan to create beautiful Valentine’s cards that are sure to bring a big smile!

Local Sacramento schools including Capital Christian School, Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary School, Sacred Heart Parish School and Holy Spirit Parish School all pitched in to deliver great cards our troops will always treasure.  What a great way for our troops to know they matter,

Rannae Hansen of Greenwood Elementary in Toledo, Ohio and her 3rd grade class participated once again this year and according to Mrs. Hansen, “The kids are so excited to participate, it really makes the feel special knowing a real hero will be receiving on of their cards!”

And a special thank you to Victory Christian School in Carmichael, CA and Dora Marques for your support in this project over the years.

Thanks to Megan Anderson of Wilmington, Delaware for the extra special hot cocoa packets with candy cane stirrers for our troops to enjoy!

We love doing this coordinated effort with the schools, it allows people of all ages to reach out to our troops and show them they are loved and supported during their long and often difficult deployments away from family and loved one.
