Let’s show soldiers we care

The local Treats for Troops group has devotedly worked for the past three years to support our soldiers serving overseas and it’s our hope that this community will continue to help with that effort.
The group’s Easter campaign is currently underway with the goal of sending as many care packages as possible in time for the holiday to the men and women of our armed forces serving in harm’s way. In order to get the packages to their destination in time, they must be received by Treats for Troops by March 26, so time is of the essence.
A story on today’s front page provides a list of the items needed for the packages. It’s also important to note that cash donations are needed in order to cover the cost of postage.
Soldiers who have received these packages report back that some of the most welcome surprises are the personal cards and letters included by the people of this community. Many of these men and women have been away from home for a long time and a simple note of appreciation helps to make their sacrifice easier.
If any of our readers know a soldier serving overseas, we hope they will provide that soldier’s name and address to the Treats for Troops group. And of course we hope everyone will do what they can to donate the needed items and money to make this Easter campaign a success.
Items can be dropped off here at the Ennis Daily News office, at Prosperity Bank in Ennis, or at the First Christian Church by March 26.
We would like to thank the volunteers at First Christian Church for working so hard to make sure our troops know that we are thinking of them and appreciate their service to our country. It’s up to the rest of us to donate to this important cause and show these soldiers that the people of this community care about them. Don’t miss this opportunity to brighten a soldier’s day.
