Holiday Cards for American Troops

November 10, 2011 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free; Any donations of cash or paperback books will be distributed to charities supporting American troops.

Please join the Rotary Club of Northwest Hennepin County for its 2011 Holiday Card Drive for American Troops.  During this event, we will make and collect holiday cards to be sent to U.S. servicemen and women stationed abroad.  As Community Service Coordinator for the Club, Erin Schulte Swanson has organized this event to thank American troops and send them holiday wishes when they are away from their own families over the holiday season.

The event will take place at the Maple Grove Arts Center between 6:30 and 8 pm on Thursday, November 10, 2011.  This is an open house style of event, so please feel free to drop by at any time during the event and stay as long as you like.  All are invited to join us, especially children.  We will have materials available for all levels of creativity, whether that be making holiday cards from scratch or writing messages on pre-made holiday cards. There is no cost to participate.  Any cash donations received will be used to send care packages to the troops, and any paperback books received will be delivered to Operation Paperback, a charity that sends used books to the troops for reading in their spare time. Please consider supporting the Rotary Club of Northwest Hennepin County‘s Holiday Card Drive even if you are unable to attend the November 10th event.  We will collect holiday cards through Friday, November 18, 2011 before packaging and mailing them overseas.  To send holiday cards for inclusion in the card drive, please mail them to:

Erin Schulte Swanson
Attn: Holiday Card Drive
PO Box 2303
Maple Grove, MN  55311

If you have any questions, please contact Erin.  Thank you for your support!
