Helping Our Troops is kicking off its 3rd Annual "Operation Holiday Heroes" Adopt-A-Box Program! With all the talk of the troops coming home, people are forgetting those who are still there and donations have slowed down considerably.
Operation Holiday Heroes has been a great success the past three years. To date, they support 154 combat units, 11 combat hospitals and 18 chaplains. They have reached out to 21,000 soldiers since its formation. Last year alone, they sent out 1,437 packages!
To continue the success of this program, Helping Our Troops is looking for donations by November 30, 2012. The Adopt-A-Box fee is $15, but you may adopt as many boxes as you would like. You can make tax-deductible checks out to: H.O.T and mail them to Stoneham Bank, ATT: H.O.T., 80 Montavle Ave., Stoneham, MA 02180.
