"Thinking of You" Card Program for Wounded Troops

Many of our nation's fighting men and women remain in harm's way in Iraq and all over the world. That's why a Beaufort City Council member is beginning a campaign to give those troops a morale boost.

Councilwoman Donnie Beer is collecting "Thinking of You" cards to send to wounded troops. A small and inexpensive gesture she's hoping will let these troops know just how much we appreciate what they're doing for our county.

"Just to let them know that someone, we may not know them and they may not know us, that there is someone out there thinking of them," she said.

If you want to participate, just buy a greeting card, sign it with a thoughtful message and put it in one of the drop-off boxes in Beaufort. Here's the list of the drop-off locations:

Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce
Beaufort City Hall
Islands Community Bank
Bed Smart (Carteret Street)
Furniture Warehouse Design Gallery
Lulu Burgess
The Town of Port Royal Town Hall
UPS Store (Scotts Street)

Do not seal the envelope, however you can put a return address on it if you like.
