Augusta Regional Airport Partners with America’s Adopt A Soldier for the 2018 National Care Letter Campaign
Thursday, December 6th, 2018
Augusta Regional Airport has partnered with America’s Adopt a Soldier to participate in the 2018 National Care Letter Campaign to honor deployed service members and veterans.
For eight years America’s Adopt A Solider asks America to write thank you cards to share with our nation’s Service Members who are deployed and Veterans who are in State Veterans Homes and Hospitals.
AGS will set up thank you stations throughout the main terminal building with supplies to write cards of appreciation to these noteworthy people December 4th through December 20th.
“In 2017, over 250,000 care letters, were shared. This year, the goal is to reach over 300,000, which would allow us to send at least four letters to every Veteran in a Veterans Home or Veterans Hospital as well as to our deployed Service Members.” Said Mary Keeser, America’s Adopt A Soldier Founder.
Mary adds, “The cards and letters we receive are drawn or written by a diverse group of individuals, from 3 years-old to the over 100 years- old. From kitchen tables to classrooms, to businesses, to college dorms to faith-based establishments, the pens, pencils, crayons and pieces of paper used to create messages of hope, appreciation, unity and support will have a positive impact. The letters of care are truly the caring pulse of America towards our Service men and women.”
