Holiday Letters and Christmas Cards for the Troops
Post 162 in Hillsdale is requesting the community, schools, churches and scouts to write letters and cards to our local troops. The Commander says "Anyone who has served in the military and been away over the holidays knows how much it means to receive mail from home."
The letters and cards may be addressed to one of the names below, or left blank and placed in drop off boxes in the River Vale Boro Hall, Hillsdale Boro Hall lobby, Hillsdale Post Office or Library during regular business hours.
Do not stamp letters we will bulk mail. Last date for pick-up is December 9th. We are planning a work party Saturday morning December 14th at 9 AM to sort and package the letters. Legion and SAL members are invited to help.
