Mailroom Monday: February 28, 2011

Note inside: "We appreciate the support! We loved - and used - the cards! -Task Force Keystone"
This week 4,030 cards were mailed out - at a cost of $182.25! It's a low week, but stay tuned - as we finish sorting out all the Spring Thaw cards, the coming week should see our shippers standing in line at the post office once again! Many thanks to all who help out every week with the shipping costs...you are making a huge difference for our heroes! 


SPECIAL REQUEST: We're running low on hero mail! If you're a teacher, or if you know one - see if their classes would write letters. We also need adult letters, so please include a couple with each of your packages. Thanks!
