Lincoln Woman's Club report on military support 'Operation Santa'

Send a link to a friend  Share

Dear Editor:

Lincoln Woman's Club District 17 GFWC Illinois participated in Operation Santa again this year.

Members sewed 135 socks, wrote 164 personal messages on cards, and with donations from Lincoln and Logan County sent $205 for postage. So many items to fill the socks were donated, we can't list them all.

Stockings are handmade and come in from all over the country. Each sock has a pair of athletic socks in the toe, a sleeve of Girl Scout cookies, a signed holiday card and various snack and hygiene items.

Special stockings for military canines included bedding, toys, brushes and booties. Volunteer groups help fill the stockings at a collection center in Bloomington.

[to top of second column in this letter]

Socks were sent to 10,000 troops in war zones. Operation Santa hit a milestone with the completion of its 200,000th stocking to be sent to troops around the world.

Thank you so very much to all who help with this project. We appreciate your donations and support.


Mary Cooper, veterans affairs chairman
Lincoln Woman's Club, District 17 GFWC Illinois
