To the editor:
Woman’s Club has been part of this project (Operation Santa) for 10
years. During the last 12 years over 245,722 sox have been delivered
to the troops.
Members of the LWC made 88 sox, wrote personal messages on 500
cards, and collected items to fill the sox and cash for postage.
These were taken to Bloomington where volunteers will fill and
prepare the sox for shipping before Thanksgiving to ensure delivery
We are very grateful for everyone who brought donations to the
Woman’s Club. Corporations, civic-minded groups, Scouts, 4-H, and
individuals make this possible.
[to top of second column in this letter]
We have letters from the troops and commanding
officers expressing gratitude and how receiving the sox helps
Thanks you for helping send “Christmas Cheer” to those far from home
Lincoln Woman’s Club
Co-Chairmen Sue Beaver and Mary Cooper
