Write a Thank-You Note


Cards and letters from back home are some of the most important gifts you could send to our troops. Besides putting a smile on a soldier's face, this is also a great opportunity to help your child learn to write a letter. Plus, it doesn't cost a thing (other than domestic postage) if you mail it to an organization like SKIP to send to a soldier for you. SKIP's mailing address is: Special Kindness In Packages, Inc., P.O. Box 276, East Bridgewater, MA 02333.
