Scenic City Storage is will be participating in an “Operation Write Home Drive” from Oct. 1-Jan. 31. Scenic City Storage is collecting blank handmade greeting cards to send to troops to write home on, as well as "AnyHero" cards of gratitude to encourage them. They have set up a little arts and craft area at the facility so those that stop by can make a card.
Operation Write Home - This band of thousands of card makers is made up of Americans – and citizens of other nations too – who care about our military, and want to support them through creativity and encouragement. Many thousands of crafters of all ages and levels of experience have participated since 2007.
Care packages filled with hundreds of handmade cards are sent to their contacts, and are sent in time for the long journey back home to loved ones. Each box is packed with great care, alternating styles, colors, and card makers from all over the USA, creating “eye candy” for heroes who see only khaki around them. The topper on each box is a plastic bag filled with 20-30 letters from adults and children across the country, letters handed out especially to those in need of a positive word from the home front.
