Contribute gift cards, National Guard asks

Gift cards for our Oregon National Guard families are much appreciated during the holiday season. Many of the families of deployed soldiers have financial difficulties, and especially during this expensive time of year.

The gift cards distributed by programs under the direction of Gen. Mike Caldwell are to offer some relief and demonstrate our appreciation of the efforts of our soldiers.

Citizens can help provide some relief at this time of year, by sending gift cards to the Oregon National Guard. Purchase a gift card for any amount, for grocery’s, toys or fuel. Send the gift cards to Caldwell, who will distribute the gift cards to the neediest of the Oregon National Guard Families all around our state. It’s a great way to let our soldiers and their families know that we appreciate them.

Send gift cards to: Gen. Mike Caldwell, Oregon National Guard, P.O. Box 14350. Salem, OR 97309.
