MADERA COUNTY – The time is fast approaching for Soroptimist International of The Sierras to send free holiday gift packages to men and women who are in the armed services.
Included in the packages are a Sierra Star newspaper, homemade goodies, gum, candies and a holiday card from members of the organization to remind our service personnel how much they are appreciated.
Send names and addresses of soldiers serving in the military, in the States or abroad, to: S.I. of The Sierras, P.O. Box 41, Oakhurst, CA 93644 or email addresses to: firstname.lastname@example.org or text the addresses to: (559) 760-7335.
A deadline has been set for Dec. 4 for putting the packages together and shipping right afterward, so they are asking for names and addresses before that date.
Please help to brighten someone’s holiday who is far from home and family.
