With the holiday season upon us, many folks are looking forward to spending time with family. But for those serving overseas in the military, that’s a luxury they don’t get.
So Siouxlanders spent time today reaching out to our heroes.
Local non-profit Support Siouxland Soldiers hosted a “Cards For Our Troops” event Tuesday afternoon at the Southern Hills Mall.
Children and adults alike wrote cards and special messages for Siouxland soldiers overseas
And one veteran says it’s packages like these that make the holidays so much better for deployed soldiers.
Bob Prato of Sioux City said, “It’s a blessing. It’s a God send. It’s something that sometimes families can’t afford to send packages but when you get all these little goodies with the cards, it makes you feel like you’re partially the way home.”
Support Siouxland Soldiers has sent over 4,000 care packages since it was created back in 2007.
They’ll be sending the cards with care packages on Thursday.
