All OLSH parishioners.  I'm excited you could stop by.

Are you a handmade card maker?  Then Operation Write Home may be a gateway for you to create cards for a great cause.

Or do you just like to write letters?  Along with sending cards the organization also sends any hero mail to the troops.  Any Hero mail is written to a "hero" to show our thanks and gratitude for all they do. 

If you would like to participate and help make cards or write Any Hero mail for our troops I would gladly send them in my packages.  This is also a great project for kids to get involved with.  Kids can download some coloring pages off the organization's website or they can write their own mail. 

Also, monetary donations help with shipping costs and I would also be able to send that along with my cards. 

Donations of supplies would also be a big help.  Supplies include different colors of cardstock, scrapbook paper packs (6" X 6") and A2 cards and envelopes (card size is 4.25" x 5.5"/envelope size is 4.375" x 5.75").  Any supplies I would receive I would make sure that they get used only for OWH.

If you have any questions or comments please contact me via the information in the church bulletin. I am hoping to get a little help and participation from some parishioners. 

Also, more information can be found by clicking the Operation Write Home Button to the left or visit  If you plan to make cards please visit the organization's website for the guidelines which must be met in order for your cards to be acceptable for the troops.  Also, you can find the coloring pages for kids on this website.

Please scroll down and see some of the cards I have donated to Operation Write Home or to see any of my other projects.

Thanks for stopping by and considering helping out Operation Write Home.
