Handmade Hugs for Soldiers Overseas

2/14/2014
Pocket Library teens support troops with Valentine messages.
 
The Teen Advisory Board (TAB) at the Robbie Waters Pocket-Greenhaven Library showed their support for American soldiers this year in the form of handmade valentines and thank you notes.
 
The teens created and mailed their valentines back in December 2013 so that the cards would reach the soldiers in time for the holiday. The cards are distributed by Hugs for Soldiers, a charitable organization that delivers letters and care packages to thousands of soldiers serving overseas.
 
Hugs for Soldiers was founded in 2003 in Duluth, Ga., by military wife Angie Doerlich, and has sent positive messages to thousands of U.S. troops deployed overseas.
 
Teens that would like to get involved in similar service projects are encouraged to join the Advisory Board at their local library.
