Christmas 2010 marks the third time that Joy is taking on this mammoth “Letters to our Troops” project. Like last year, neither of her sons, Jeffrey or Michel, is in Afghanistan for Christmas, although the youngest, Michel, has recently returned from the country.
The letters, cards and small gifts are becoming a tradition for our troops overseas, and are an important link to home. For Joy, it means a lot of hard work, getting everything together, but it is well worth the effort, judging from the many letters she receives, thanking her for her efforts.
If you want to bring your gifts or have any questions, just drop by the Pop Shoppe. Remember, too, that the sooner you can bring your gift, the easier it will be for Joy and her family getting everything ready before the deadline.
